(AP) Braxton Miller ran for two scores including a record 81-yarder and Travis Howard ended Indiana’s last chance at tying it with an interception, leading Ohio State to a 34-20 victory on Saturday. The victory was the third in a row for the Buckeyes (6-3, 3-2 Big Ten), but it didn’t come easy. Three Buckeyes topped 100 yards rushing: Dan Herron with 141 yards on 14 carries, Carlos Hyde with 105 on 15 and Miller with 105 on 14. It was the first time Ohio State had three runners go over 100 since Scottie Graham, Carlos Snow and Dante Lee did it in 1989 against Northwestern.

Michigan’s trip to Iowa is without a doubt the biggest Big Ten clash of the weekend. It’s a key battle in a Legends Division race that is wide open and features four schools still in the thick of the hunt: Nebraska, Michigan State, Michigan and Iowa. Suffice it to say, neither the Wolverines nor the Hawkeyes can afford to lose.
