Patchwork Buckeyes remain unbeaten

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- The roster is thin enough that the starting fullback was forced to switch to linebacker and wound up leading the team in tackles.

The defense continues to give up huge chunks of yardage at a time, though it typically doesn't break as often as it bends.

Even a high-powered offense that can move the ball at will on the ground is occasionally prone to periods of inactivity, even against opponents with no physical answer for the singular skills of Braxton Miller or the dual threat he poses with Carlos Hyde.

Ohio State might be covered in patches, but even on a night when it didn't feel particularly attractive in a 52-49 shootout with Indiana at Memorial Stadium, the outfit it cobbled together still looked perfect in the standings.
