The Buckeyes are edging closer to a win over Indiana.

After seeing Saturday’s game turn into a back-and-forth affair, Shaun Wade has put a big damper on the comeback hopes of Indiana. This crucial play came after the Hoosiers had rattled off 14-unanswered points after falling behind 35-7.

Indiana even had a great shot at making it a one-possession game late in the third quarter. Ohio State had just missed a field goal and was holding a 14-point lead when the Hoosiers took over on offense.

That’s when Indiana’s Michael Penix Jr. threw an out-route. Unfortunately for Penix, he missed Wade baiting him into the throw, setting up way off the line of scrimmage but breaking hard on the long throw.

It was a textbook play by the defensive back with the pick setting him up wide open down the sideline and into the end zone for the score:

That pushes Ohio State’s lead back to 21 points and could finish off any hopes of a comeback.
