JT Barrett had a historic moment for the Ohio State football program on Saturday. As a result, he was honored after the Buckeyes defeated the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, 58-0, in Columbus.
Following the blowout win, Ohio State released a video of the locker room celebration and game ball presentation from head coach Urban Meyer.
Meyer honored Barrett with the game ball, because one of Barrett’s four touchdown passes on the day gave him the school record for most touchdown passes in a career with 58. The previous record-holder was Bobby Hoying.
“You guys who know Ohio State history – this is something. No. 1 in the books,” Meyer said.
“He’s only had 21 starts. He’s averaging three touchdown passes per game. He’s the No. 1 quarterback in touchdown passes in the history of Ohio State.”
When you set the school record for passing TD 4 games into your junior season, you get the game ball…

The win moved the No. 2 Buckeyes to 4-0 on the season.
With the College Football Playoff and Big Ten Championship in their sights, Ohio State must now turn their attention to next weekend’s home game against the Indiana Hoosiers.
