College Football: Hand Him The... Ohio State's J.T. Barrett

Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett cemented his place in the Big Ten record book in the first half of Saturday's clash between No. 2 Penn State and the sixth-ranked Buckeyes. Barrett's 14-yard touchdown pass to Terry McLaurin in the second quarter gave the quarterback his 91st career touchdown pass, which broke a tie with former Purdue quarterback Drew Brees and moved the OSU signal caller into first place all-time in conference history.
