BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — C.J. Stroud and TreVeyon Henderson provided Ohio State’s offense with a refreshingly familiar look Saturday.
Even a persistently rainy night couldn't derail the Buckeyes' two big stars.
Stroud threw four touchdown passes, Henderson scored three times and No. 5 Ohio State routed Indiana 54-7 after its bye week, extending the Football Bowl Subdivision's longest active winning streak against one team to 27 in a row.
“It was great to see those guys running around. It looked like they were having fun out there," coach Ryan Day said. “That's good and that's part of the energy we want.”
Right now, it seems nothing can stop the Buckeyes (6-1, 4-0 Big Ten).
They've won five straight overall, 25 in a row against conference foes including their Big Ten championship game victories, an FBS-leading 12 consecutive true road games and a conference-record 11 straight road games against league foes by double digits.
And this dominant victory resembled so many others along the way.
After Henderson broke a 7-all tie with a 21-yard TD run late in the first quarter, the short-handed Hoosiers (2-5, 0-4) never had a chance. Ohio State scored the final 37 points of the first half and Day pulled his starters after three quarters.
