In the last six quarters IU has played in, they have been outscored 79-3.

The struggles continue in Columbus, Ohio as IU is down 28-0 at halftime to No. 3 Ohio State.

It didn't take long for the Buckeyes to get on the board.

Ohio State has 218 rushing yards so far, as quarterback Braxton Miller has accounted for 136 of those yards.

On their opening possession, Carlos Hyde's 16-yard run capped off a drive in which Ohio State averaged 14.2 yards per play.

Ohio State's next possession was also easy. Braxton Miller somersaulted into the end zone after escaping the pocket for a 37-yard touchdown run.

The next two possessions saw the much maligned IU defense get stops. First, Ralph Green stripped Miller on the sack and IU recovered. Then, they forced a punt.

The offense couldn't convert, as they are scoreless today.

Both Nate Sudfeld and Tre Roberson have seen action at quarterback.

Ohio State also has a blocked punt. The Buckeyes took over inside the 10-yard line, and scored two plays later.

Miller was lined up as a wide receiver and took the reverse handoff from backup quarterback Kenny Guiton. It looked as though Miller was going to throw it, but he saw a running lane.

He cut up field, and completely hurdled would-be-tackler Tim Bennett for the spectacular touchdown run.

After a failed fourth down conversion attempt by IU, Ohio State marched down the field in 52 seconds. The 5-yard touchdown run put Ohio State up 28-0.

IU will receive the ball to start the second half.
