If you ignore when he went on the road against #7 Michigan state and put up 61.5% for 300 yd, 3 TD 0 INT, 86 yd rush, 2 TD, he's been awful. Well yeah, there's the time he went to #12 Michigan and put up 60% for 113 yd, 1 TD 0 INT, 139 yd rush, 3 TD, but that was just Zeke anyway! Barrett might as well have not even been in the stadium! That Fiesta Bowl game against #8 Notre Dame was trash. 61.3% for 211 yd, 1 TD 1 INT, 96 yd rush really is barely FBS level if you think about it. Jaylon Smith's injury really saved JT there!
Big games on the road against top 15 teams have really shown JT's teammates as the engine of the team. Noah Brown dragged JT kicking and screaming @ #14 Oklahoma to a 70% for 152 yd, 4 TD 0 INT, 74 yd rush performance. Sad. The Big Ten West is barely real football, so no need to even consider 58.6% for 226 yd, 1 TD 0 INT, 92 yd rush 2 TD at Camp Randall against #8 Wisconsin. Easy when you don't play anyone! Nebraska ended up sucking last year, so it's easy to explain away JT's performance against then #9 Nebraska when he put up 68.4% for 290 yd, 4 TD 0 INT, 39 yd rush.
