Ohio State 40, Northwestern 30 — Final
What a game.
The No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes (6-0) got a huge road win over the No. 16 Northwestern Wildcats (4-1), coming from behind to capture a 40-30 victory.
Carlos Hyde led the Buckeyes, rushing for 169 yards and three touchdowns on just 26 carries. Hyde fueled an Ohio State offense that piled up 451 yards of total offense, 248 of which came on the ground.
Northwestern's two-quarterback system gave the Buckeyes fits all night as Trevor Siemian and Kain Colter combined to throw for 343 yards and two touchdowns on 25-of-31 passing.
In the end, the Wildcats just couldn't find an answer for Ohio State's rushing attack. Northwestern had a three-point lead on two separate occasions in the fourth quarter, but the Buckeyes answered each time with a touchdown.
