Columbus, OH (Sports Network) - Braxton Miller rushed for a career-high 185 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries and Carlos Hyde added four rushing scores as No. 12 Ohio State downed No. 21 Nebraska, 63-38, on Saturday at Ohio Stadium.

Miller added 127 yards and a touchdown pass on 7-of-14 passing and Hyde finished with 138 yards on 28 carries for the Buckeyes (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten), who slipped past Michigan State on the road last weekend to open conference play.

Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez threw for 214 yards and one touchdown on 15-of-25 efficiency, but tossed a career-high tying three interceptions in the setback, which snapped Nebraska's (4-2, 1-1) three-game winning streak.

Rex Burkhead rushed for 119 yards on 14 carries, while Kenny Bell hauled in five passes for 133 yards in a losing effort.
