COLUMBUS — Not only has Ohio State thrust themselves onto the short list of College Football Playoff contenders, they have done so on the shoulders of a freshman ... wait for it ... Heisman Trophy contender!
Don't believe the Buckeyes' young quarterback, J.T. Barrett, is worthy of the most coveted individual trophy in collegiate sports? Well let me provide you with a little food for thought.
Through 10 games this season, Barrett has combined for more total touchdowns (29 passing, 9 rushing) than nine Big Ten teams. In fact, he has gotten the rock across the chalk more than 60 teams have in the FBS.
