J.T. Barrett breaks Ohio State record

  J.T. Barrett broke Ohio State's record for touchdowns responsible for against Wisconsin.

On Saturday, quarterback J.T. Barrett led the Ohio State Buckeyes to a nailbiting overtime victory in Wisconsin. However, Barrett posted more than another ‘W’ for OSU.

In the final touchdown of the evening, Barrett sent one flying into the arms of Noah Brown, which accounted for Barrett’s 89th career touchdown. According to Ohio State Athletics, this pushed him past former quarterback and wide receiver Braxton Miller’s 88 for Ohio State’s career touchdowns accounted for record.

Barrett already holds multiple Ohio State records including most career touchdown passes with 60 and most touchdowns responsible for in a single season with 45 in 2014.

And, he still has the rest of this season to play along with another year of eligibility, so we may be seeing much more of Buckeye J.T. Barrett.
