COLUMBUS — What a crazy ride it has been for the Ohio State football team this season.
The Buckeyes began the 2014 campaign by losing their two-time Big Ten Player of the Year quarterback, Braxton Miller — to a shoulder injury — giving way to a freshman signal caller in J.T. Barrett, who had never taken a snap in a collegiate contest prior to this season.
It certainly seemed their College Football Playoff dreams were dashed with the injury to Miller.
However, after a rough start, Barrett went on a rampage, logging more yards of offense than anyone in school-history, and more total touchdowns than anyone in the history of the Big Ten. Barrett was well on his way to making it a third-straight Big Ten P.O.Y. honor for the Buckeyes.
