J.T. Barrett The Winner
J.T. Barrett Winning
J.T. Barrett's career record is 43-6, witch is the most wins in Ohio State history by a quarterback (Once more do not quote me on this I could not find a straight answer and I could not go through every qb in Ohio state history) He is also the only quarterback in Ohio State history to go 4-0 against Michigan. J.T. Barrett may never have had an undefeated season but he is still 43-6 as the Buckeyes starting quarterback. he is also the only quarterback to ever be named captain for three years in Ohio State football history.
J.T. Barrett led the Buckeyes to the comeback of the decade against Penn State, he had an unbelievable quarterback rating of 189.1 against the number two ranked team in the country. J.T. Barrett went 13-13 passing in the final quarter of the game, he threw three touchdowns, 0 interceptions, and passed for 170 yards. While he passed 33-39, with 4 touchdowns, and 328 yards for the whole game and rushed for 95 yards and 17 carries when he led the game in both rushing and passing yards. When the Buckeyes were down by 19 in the fourth quarter J.T. Barrett, or as I call him The Conductor, rallied the Buckeyes and inspired them all the way to the end. J.T. Barrett was the only Buckeye who never truly gave up throughout the entire game, he never wavered and he trying. If you watch the game closely all of the other Buckeyes gave up early in the second half, but you could see there was J.T. Barrett who kept playing out through the entire game. i know you all must be thinking that kind of stuff doesn't matter but when it comes down to it J.T. was the only reason the rest of the team tried, and that truly matters.
