Barrett returns as quarterback for No. 2 Ohio State
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) J.T. Barrett is once again the starting quarterback for No. 2 Ohio State after returning from a one-game suspension.
Meyer announced Barrett as the starter Monday, two days after backup Cardale Jones led the Buckeyes to a 28-14 win against Minnesota.
Barrett was suspended by Meyer for after the quarterback was cited for driving while impaired.
Meyer says Barrett will start unless he doesn't have a good week of practice - his team's normal policy.
While Barrett was not in uniform Saturday, the captain was very much a presence at the game. Instead of his usual pregame speech he made one at halftime, when the Buckeyes (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten, No. 3 CFP) led 14-0.
Barrett was issued a misdemeanor ticket at a sobriety checkpoint Oct. 31 near the Ohio State campus. His court date is Tuesday morning.
