J.T. Barrett added another item to his long list of accomplishments at Ohio State on Saturday, as he became the first quarterback in Buckeyes history to go 4-0 as a starter against Michigan.
The 31-20 win over the Wolverines wasn’t all Barrett, though, as a meniscus injury forced Barrett out of the game in the third quarter. Backup Dwayne Haskins entered the game and promptly led a touchdown drive to give Ohio State a 21-20 lead in his first action against Michigan.
Land of 10’s Austin Ward speculated before the game that a win would give Barrett GOAT status as an Ohio State quarterback, and it’s hard to think of a counterargument.
Barrett is the Big Ten’s all-time total touchdowns leader, Ohio State’s career passing leader and its offensive yards leader. He’s certainly had help thanks to coach Urban Meyer and his highly recruited teammates, but it takes a special quality to stick as a starter for four years and continue to win.
