COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Master Teague rushed for a career-high 169 yards and two touchdowns and No. 3 Ohio State held off a comeback by No. 9 Indiana to win 42-35.

Directed by quarterback Michael Penix Jr., the Hoosiers (4-1) rallied from a four-touchdown deficit in the second half and made it a one-score game with 10:26 left, but their last two drives stalled.

Penix was 27 for 51 for a career-high 491 yards and five touchdowns for Indiana.
