It was a rainy night in Evanston, but it wasn't enough to stop Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde.
Hyde ran for 168 yards and 3 TD's, leading the Buckeye's to a 40-30 comeback win against Northwestern.
It wasn't always pretty, but the win moved tOSU to 6-0 on the season and cemented them as a BCS contender despite the overall lackluster state of Big 10 football.
Northwestern came out inspired and jumped out to 20-13 halftime lead and was looking for a statement victory.
They almost got it.
Wildcat QB Trevor Siemian threw for 245 yards and 2 TD's, but the defense, despite 2 fumbles and an interception by Ohio State QB Braxton Miller, couldn't slow down Hyde.
Ohio State gets next week off, Northwestern, now 4-1 has a trip to Wisconsin next week.
