Barrett solidifies his place in Buckeye history.

Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett made history Saturday night in Madison against the Wisconsin Badgers, when in overtime, he accounted for his 89th career touchdown.

Barrett took the record from recently-turned-pro Braxton Miller, who was responsible for 88 career touchdowns in his four years on the field.

J.T. got off to a fast start on the record his freshman year, when he covered more than half the record passing for 34 touchdowns, and rushing for 11 more.

The record breaker came in overtime in a tense game against Wisconsin. He found Noah Brown, a favorite target of the young 2016 season, on this great throw and catch:

The 2015 season wasn’t as productive, as he split time with Cardale Jones for much of the season, and the Buckeyes offense had trouble for just about all but two games.

Hopefully J.T. is able to carry the momentum throughout the rest of the season, and continue to climb the ranks of Ohio State greats.
