There have been more lows during J.T. Barrett’s senior season than many people anticipated, but there have also been an incredible amount of highs, including the quarterback etching his name into the Ohio State and Big Ten record books multiple times. And, on Senior Day against the Illinois Fighting Illini, he did it again.

With his first quarter pass to Binjimen Victor, Barrett became the first QB in school and conference history to amass 100 touchdown passes in his career. The scoring throw was his 31st of the season, which pairs well with his eight rushing scores as well. Currently, the Wichita Falls, TX-native has an OSU and B1G record 139 touchdowns accounted for during his career.

Earlier this season, Barrett broke the conference total touchdown record, the OSU passing yards record, and the B1G passing TD record as well.
