The announcement that Ohio State fans have been waiting for all season long has finally come down. After the Buckeyes began using J.T. Barrett as their redzone quarterback the last two games and he replaced Cardale Jones in the win against Penn State last week, he has finally been named the starter.
Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller announced via Twitter that head coach Urban Meyer made the decision via a conference call on Tuesday.
