JT Barrett says he will play in Big Ten Championship Game

Adjust Comment Print

MI gave Ohio State everything it wanted and more.

He was tackled by Wolverines linebacker Mike McCray with 6:07 left in the quarter and his team trailing 20-14.

If any Michigan fans or players believe the Wolverines should have won last year's Ohio State-Michigan game, Ohio Gov. John Kasich offered a reminder in his annual resolution for the Ohio State-Michigan game.

After knocking off MI, the Buckeyes have won each of their last three games heading into a showdown against Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game on December 2.

At the time of his injury, Barrett was 3 of 8 for 30 yards with a touchdown passing and had run 15 times for 67 yards and another score.

But things began to slip from there. The extra-point try was blocked. Three Michigan defenders had a bead on the ball, but it was Barrett who recovered.

Haskins was off the mark with his pass on third-and-five, but a defensive hold gave the Buckeyes an automatic first down. Nuernberger missed a 43-yard try with 2:47 remaining.

San Antonio shot 39.8 percent overall (35/88) and 25 percent (6/24) from the three-point line in the loss to New Orleans. The Spurs won the first game in the season series by a count of 108-101 on their home floor on November 3.

Barrett said after the game that he would play in next week's Big Ten Championship Game. Haskins completed six of his seven passes for 94 yards and he took off for 24 rushing yards as well.

Two plays later, Haskins called his own number, rushed around right end and gained 22 yards before being pushed out at the one-yard line. Well, sort of. Up 14-0 in the second quarter, Metellus had a sure interception hit him in the chest and then fall to the ground.

Assuming it is a menisectomy surgery where the cartilage is trimmed, he could return to play in time for a bowl game.

O'Korn, meanwhile, squandered Michigan's last-ditch effort late in the fourth quarter by heaving a prayer toward no one in particular on first down.

Haskins led Ohio State down the field after Barrett's injury, setting up Dobbins' 1-yard touchdown run with a 22-yard scamper.

Down by a 14-0 count early in the second quarter, the Buckeyes went to work offensively. The Wolverines entered this game short-handed with an uphill battle in front of them.
