Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett has been named as the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in the Buckeyes' 56-14 win at Nebraska.
Barrett completed 27 of 33 passing attempts for 325 yards and five touchdowns and ran for 48 yards and two touchdowns – tying his own school record for total touchdowns – as the Buckeyes scored a touchdown on every possession Barrett played on Saturday night.
The senior quarterback from Wichita Falls, Texas, is now an eight-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week, tying him with former Purdue quarterback Drew Brees for third-most all-time. Only former Wisconsin running back Ron Dayne and former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson, who were each nine-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week recipients, have received the award more times.
It's the second time Barrett has been named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week this season, as he previously received the award for his performance in the Buckeyes' season-opening win at Indiana.
