Ohio State Scores On First Eight-Possessions, Dominate Nebraska

JT Barrett tied a school record by accounting for seven touchdowns in Ohio State's romp over Nebraska. 

Barrett set the mark last September in a win against Bowling Green. Barrett had five touchdowns passing, two rushing and 325 passing yards in a game that was over early. 

Ohio State (6-1, 4-0 Big Ten) scored on its first eight possessions and finished with 633 total yards, dispiriting a Nebraska fan base that expressed itself initially with anger, then absence. 

Nebraska (3-4, 2-2) finished with 44 rushing yards on 16 carries in what was its third home loss of the season. The loss continued an angst-riddled season for the Cornhuskers.

 Athletic director Shawn Eichorst was fired last month days after a loss to Northern Illinois. Speculation has swirled much of the year that coach Mike Riley, now 18-15 in three seasons in Lincoln, could be next.
