COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Braxton Miller passed for three touchdowns and ran for two and Carlos Hyde rushed for 147 yards and two more scores to lead No. 4 Ohio State to a 63-14 victory over Penn State on Saturday night.

It was the most points surrendered by Penn State (4-3, 1-2 Big Ten) and its worst beating in 114 years.

The Ohio State (8-0, 4-0) victory stretched its nation’s best winning streak to 20 in a row, two behind the school mark which included the 1968 national championship season. That team was recognized during the opening half as the Buckeyes streaked to a 42-7 lead.

Nittany Lions freshman QB Christian Hackenberg bobbled the second snap of the night and it never got much better. He ended up throwing two interceptions.
