J.T. Barrett hasn’t even played two full seasons at Ohio State and he’s already atop the school’s record books.
The redshirt junior set the Buckeyes record for career touchdown passes with 58 after hitting TE Marcus Baugh for a 16-yard score in the second quarter of Saturday’s game vs. Rutgers.
Barrett sells the pump fake, then Baugh drags 2 guys into the EZ. https://t.co/7ox1CD6pjt

Bob Hoying, who played from 1992-1995, held the mark with 57.
Barrett has played in just 26 career games. He entered Saturday’s contest vs. Rutgers with 4,476 passing yards at 8.4 yards per attempt, 55 TDs and just 15 INTs.
In 2014, Barrett set a Big Ten record for touchdowns accounted for with 45. He broke his ankle in Ohio State’s season finale against Michigan, and Cardale Jones then led the Buckeyes to a Big Ten and national title.
The two split time in 2015 before coach Urban Meyer ultimately settled on Barrett, who had outplayed Jones all year.
