BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Braxton Miller scored on a 67-yard touchdown run, threw TD passes of 60 and 46 yards and produced his third straight 100-yard rushing game, helping No. 8 Ohio State escape with a 52-49 win at Indiana on Saturday night.

The victory makes the Buckeyes (7-0, 3-0 Big Ten) the first ranked team with seven wins.

Indiana (2-4, 0-3) has now lost 21 straight conference games to teams from outside the state and 18 straight to the Buckeyes since 1988, including the game Ohio State won two years ago but later vacated as part of an NCAA penalty.

This one sure wasn't easy.

But Miller had all the answers -- scoring on his 67-yard run on the next offensive play after Indiana trimmed the deficit to 24-17, leading the Buckeyes on back-to-back drives of 75 and 78 drives and throwing a 46-yard TD pass to break open the game late.
