Ohio State pummels Indiana with dominant first half in Bloomington
Ohio State’s word of the day for Saturday is domination.
If you want the definition, just watch highlights of the Buckeyes’ 44-point performance in the first half of their game against Indiana.
After Indiana tied the game 7-7, Ohio State rattled off 37 straight points and ran circles around the Hoosiers. It’s the 4th time the Buckeyes scored 30 or more points in a half — the most in the FBS this season.

Remember: These are halftime stats.
Indiana has had a bit of a quarterback carousel so far. Jack Tuttle started, but left with an injury. From there, Donaven McCulley came in, then Grant Gremel replaced him. Tuttle then re-entered the game.
We’ll see how things go in the second half, which is coming up on ABC.
