Ohio State Vs. Nebraska Final Score: Buckeyes Roll On The Road, Beat Cornhuskers 79-45

The Ohio State Buckeyes are rolling once again.

After a couple of tough road losses early in Big Ten play, the Buckeyes seemed to snap out of their funk with a convincing win over Indiana last week and they continued that trend on Saturday evening when they went on the road and routed the Nebraska Cornhuskers 79-45.

The 45 points allowed is the impressive part of this win as the Ohio State pressure was able to put the clamps on a frisky Nebraska squad that showed up ready to play. After five minutes, Nebraska had n 8-5 lead but things turned quickly against the home team as Ohio State put together a 13-0 run and never looked back.

The Buckeyes used a full team effort at both ends of the floor ending the game with 12 different players scoring points. William Buford led the way with 15 points including 3 for 5 from behind the arc. Jared Sullinger and Deshaun Thomas each pitched in 14 points.

With Michigan playing outside the Big Ten, the win moved Ohio State (17-3) into a tie for first place with Michigan and Michigan State at 5-2 in conference play.
