Ohio State’s J.T. Barrett breaks Big Ten passing TD record

At least there’s something to be happy about today.

With a cavalcade of special teams errors, needless false start penalties, and head-scratching play calls, one of the lone bright spots of the first half against Penn State was quarterback J.T. Barrett’s record-setting touchdown pass to receiver Terry McLaurin.

The TD throw, the senior’s 91st of his career, breaks the Big Ten conference record previously held by Purdue all-time great Drew Brees. The record is the latest that Barrett has broken this season.

Against Army, Barrett broke the B1G all-time total touchdown record, also held by Brees, with a TD pass to Austin Mack. Also this season, Barrett has set a new high-mark for career passing in Ohio State program history.
