Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett has been named as the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award National Player of the Week for the second time in as many games.

The senior quarterback from Wichita Falls, Texas, earned this week's award for his performance in Ohio State's 39-38 win over Penn State, in which he completed 33 of 39 passing attempts for 328 yards and four touchdowns while also rushing for 95 yards on 17 carries.

Barrett previously received the award, which honors the nation's best offensive player with a Texas connection on a weekly basis, two weeks ago for his seven-touchdown performance at Nebraska prior to the Buckeyes' open week.

The award has now been won by an Ohio State player three times this season alone. La Grange, Texas native J.K. Dobbins won the award for his performance in Ohio State's season opener at Indiana.

Barrett was also named Tuesday as the Davey O'Brien Award National Quarterback of the Week, making him the first quarterback to win that award twice this year. He was named Monday as the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week for a record-tying ninth time. It's his second time in three weeks pulling off that award trifecta, as he previously won each of those awards for his performance against Nebraska as well.
