College Gameday reported that Ohio State has suspended J.T. Barrett for their next game against Minnesota. Barrett was arrested Friday night for driving under the influence. His blood-alcohol level was slightly above the legal limit. The Buckeyes are on a bye week and Barrett could be subject to a longer suspension.
There is little details about where Barrett was before the arrest. According to Busted Coverage, Barrett attended a high school game earlier in the night.
Barrett was named the starting quarterback prior to Ohio State’s bye week and started against Rutgers. The Ohio State offense had struggled to gain momentum under Cardale Jones in previous weeks. Jones would be the next quarterback in line and will likely start against Minnesota.
ESPN’s Brett McMurphy reported Jones will be allowed to play the following week against Illinois.
