J.T. Barrett Enters Heisman Race as a Dark Horse

By 11W Staff on October 8, 2014 at 10:16 am
Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett has snuck in through the back door of the Heisman conversation.

It's not the craziest turn of events, but just a month after looking lost against Virginia Tech, Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett is starting to force his way into the Heisman Trophy conversation.

Heisman Pundit picked up Barrett's case earlier in the week, noting the previous two Heisman Trophy winners were redshirt freshmen. Barrett's still a dark horse in the race, to be sure, but as you can see above, his numbers through five starts compare very favorably to those of last year's winner, Florida State's Jameis Winston.

Keep doing your thing, J.T.
