Will Saturday's Game Against Michigan Be J.T. Barrett's Final at Ohio Stadium? ‘I Haven't Even Began Thinking About That, Really’

Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett meets the media.

Ohio State hosts Michigan on Saturday in the biggest game between the two storied rivals since 2006.

But will it also be the last home game for Buckeyes quarterback J.T. Barrett?

Barrett, a redshirt junior who owns just about every school record imaginable, was asked about that very possibility Monday.

“I haven’t even began thinking about that, really,” Barrett said. “I’m just taking each week and trying to focus, live in the moment. My mind, it ain’t even got there.”

Barrett has 6,130 career passing yards, 2,342 career rushing yards and 99 total touchdowns in his three years as Ohio State’s starting quarterback. This season, the Wichita Falls, Texas native has thrown for 2,304 yards, run for 722 and has 32 total touchdowns.

It’s his fourth year in the program, however, and Barrett has the opportunity to forgo his final year of eligibility should he choose to do so.

For now, though, the Ohio State quarterback is strictly focused on beating Michigan.
