With stats like these, JT Barrett is poised to rank among greatest players in program’s history

Breakin’ records and takin’ names

Fifth-year senior QB JT Barrett's name is all over the Ohio State record book. He currently holds over 25 Ohio State records for either single-game, season, or career statistics.

In 2014, Barrett, then a redshirt freshman, broke the 1998 record (42) for most touchdowns responsible for in one season with 45. Later that year, he went on to be named Big Ten Quarterback of the Year and reclaimed the title in 2016.

The longtime Ohio State starter became the Big Ten's all-time touchdown leader a few weeks ago against Army with his 107th total touchdown accounted for, surpassing former Purdue quarterback Drew Brees.

He is tied with Kenny Guiton for achieving the most touchdowns in a game, which he has done twice, with six touchdowns.

On Saturday at Rutgers, Barrett eclipsed 10,000 yards of total offense in his career, becoming the first player in school history to reach this momentous milestone.

If you aren't already impressed, Barrett also became the program's all-time leading passer, surpassing Art Schlichter's record of 7,547 set in 1981, reaching 7,549 career yards.

No other quarterback in the storied Ohio State football program has reached as many milestones as JT Barrett. He is in sole possession of 38th place in NCAA history.
