Ohio State redshirt sophomore J.T. Barrett has been suspended for next weekend’s contest against the Minnesota Golden Gophers. He will not be able to play in that game after being cited early this morning.
This news comes on the heels of charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated. He was reportedly stopped by a checkpoint near campus.
The school has said that he has been cited for misdemeanor offense of OVI. The Buckeyes are presently in their bye week, so that’s why he’s serving his suspension next week.
Barrett, 20, blew a breathalyzer test slightly over the 0.08 and was released to his teammate – fellow quarterback Cardale Jones.
Just last week, Barrett regained the starting quarterback role over Jones, who started the first seven games. With Barrett, OSU rolled past the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, 49-7, in North Jersey last Saturday night.
In the game, he went 14 of 18 for 223 and three touchdowns. The win is considered the team’s best win of the season.
Barrett, who was the starter last season and finished in the Top 5 for the Heisman Trophy, broke his ankle against the Michigan Wolverines and cost him the rest of the season. Jones took over and led the team to the first-ever FBS National Championship playoff win.
