JT Barrett says he will play in Big Ten Championship Game

After Josh Metellus dropped an interception near Ohio State's goal line, J.T. Barrett got the Buckeyes going with a 21-yard touchdown scramble.

JT Barrett says that he will play in the Big Ten Championship Game next weekend against Wisconsin despite his knee injury.

O'Korn overthrew three open receivers in the first quarter, but he did connect with tight end Zach Gentry for a 27-yard gain on the Wolverines' first touchdown drive. He did rush for 67 yards and a touchdown.

And just like that, "The Game" was tied at 14 all.

It was also just another frustrating example for MI fans just how much work there is still to be done in order to compete with Ohio State and for a Big Ten title.

The Wolverines had an answer in the third quarter when Karan Higdon capped a 51-yard drive with a 2-yard scoring plunge, but Quinn Nordin's extra point was blocked.




MI had one last chance, though, after Nuernberger missed a 43-yard attempt with 2:47 left in the fourth.

If that is the injury, it would be hard for Barrett to try to play while putting off surgery until after the season.

Khalid Hill's 2-yard scoring run capped a 13-play, 77-yard MI drive in the opening quarter.

The Buckeyes ran nine offensive plays in the first quarter for a total of minus-6 yards - the first time they have had negative yards in a quarter under head coach Urban Meyer.

Redshirt freshman Brandon Peters, who started the last three games, left last week's Wisconsin game with a concussion.

MI began the drive at the OSU 5 after a 42-yard punt return from Donovan Peoples-Jones and a holding penalty on the Buckeyes. Wolverines LT Mason Cole started his 50th game, tying him with Jon Jansen (1995-98) for most starts by a MI lineman.
