COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) A month ago some Ohio State faithful urged the benching of quarterback J.T. Barrett because of the anemic passing game. Now he's being talked about as a potential Heisman Trophy candidate.
It's been all good lately for the fifth-year senior, statistically the best quarterback to ever play at Ohio State.
He's piled up passing yards and touchdowns in five straight blowouts since the Buckeyes lost to Oklahoma in Week 2. Despite beating badly out-manned opponents in those contests, coach Urban Meyer said Barrett and the rest of the offense have made immense strides since stumbling against Oklahoma.
