The Ohio State Buckeyes have announced that redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett has indeed suffered a broken right ankle in the second half this afternoon in a 42-28 win over Michigan Wolverines. He’ll undergo surgery tomorrow at Ohio State University Medical Center.

As a result of the injury and pending surgery, he will not play the rest of this season. He was an 11-1 as the starter with the only loss coming in Week 2 against the Virginia Tech Hokies.

He took over the position just 12 days before the season opened in Maryland. In today’s game, he had 89 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns, while he also had 176 passing yards and a touchdown.

He left the game with the Buckeyes leading 28-21. Ohio State would go on to score two more touchdowns to put the game out of reach.

While Barrett was on the ground in pain, Wolverines quarterback Devin Gardner came out to show class to his fellow competitor. While the two schools hate each other, what Gardner did was a class act.

Before exiting the game, he sent the Big Ten Conference record for total touchdowns, which was previously held by Purdue Boilermakers quarterback Drew Brees. Barrett had 3,772 yards and a combined 45 touchdowns.

He had 2,834 yards threw the air with a school-record 34 touchdowns. He also rushed for 938 yards and 11 additional touchdowns.
