COLUMBUS, Ohio -

Braxton Miller rushed for 185 yards, an Ohio State single-game record for a quarterback, in leading the undefeated Buckeyes over visiting Nebraska.

Carlos Hyde contributed a career-high 138 rushing yards on 28 carries and scored four touchdowns for Ohio State (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten). His third touchdown run sparked a 21-0 second-half surge that pushed the Buckeyes' lead to 56-31.

Rex Burkhead rushed for 119 yards on 14 carries for Nebraska (4-2, 1-1), before leaving early in the second half with a leg injury. Burkhead missed two games earlier this season with a sprained left knee.

The teams traded leads four times in the first half before Miller scored on a 31-yard run with 23 seconds remaining in the first half to push Ohio State’s lead to 35-24.

The Buckeyes were limited to 17 total yards in the first quarter and did not record a first down until Miller ran 72 yards to the Nebraska 3-yard line with just under 12 minutes remaining in the second quarter. Hyde scored two plays later to cut the deficit to 17-14.

GAME NOTEBOOK: The announced attendance was 106,102, an Ohio Stadium record. … A 73-yard run midway through the first quarter by Burkhead was the longest of his career. … Ohio State senior linebacker Etienne Sabino left the game in the first half with knee injury and didn’t return.
