Article excerpt

Terry Glenn caught nine passes for a school-record 253 yards and four touchdowns Saturday as eighth-ranked Ohio State wore down Pittsburgh 54-14.

Glenn, a starter for the first time after backing up current NFL players Joey Galloway and Chris Sanders in 1994, scored on passes of 75, 61, 36 and 12 yards from Bobby Hoying.

Hoying completed 15-of-24 passes for 296 yards and five touchdowns in three quarters. Eddie George gained 121 yards on 24 carries in little over a half and now has 433 yards in the Buckeyes' three wins.

Pitt (2-2) trailed 20-14 at halftime.

The gamble there would be time left for another possession paid off when Lee Brush intercepted a pass by backup quarterback Todd Schultz, who came into the game for the Spartans (1-1-1, 0-0-1) after Tony Banks hurt his leg with 1:18 to go. Purdue mounted a drive at its 42 with 46 seconds left and drove 24 yard the failed kick with four seconds left.
