JT Barrett says he will play in Big Ten Championship Game

Only one current Browns player from Ohio State/Michigan rivalry

Urban Meyer said J.T. Barrett's meniscus injury, which forced him out of Ohio State's 31-20 victory over MI in the third quarter, was caused by a camera on the sideline.

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

Barrett, who fractured his right ankle against MI as a freshman, ran for a touchdown and passed for another in the first half.

Returner K.J. Hill gained 11 yards on the run back of the second kick.

On first-and-goal from the MI one-yard line, Dobbins took the handoff from backup quarterback Dwayne Haskins and pushed the pile at the line of scrimmage into the end zone for his seventh rushing score of the season.

The teams were tied at 14 at halftime.

Ohio State prevailed a year ago, 30-27 in double overtime, following a controversial spot that still sticks in the craw for some in the maize and blue.

Barrett broke his leg in a victory over MI in 2014.

Redshirt freshman Brandon Peters, who started the last three games, left last week's Wisconsin game with a concussion. Ohio State - who was forced to turn to backup Dwayne Haskins after Barrett suffered a knee injury - continued to move the ball. Nuernberger missed a 43-yard try with 2:47 remaining. "And (Barrett) is so tough he went out there and played and obviously we didn't do very well".

Donovan Peoples-Jones returned a punt 42 yards during the closing seconds of the 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. They went ahead 14-0 on the first play of the second quarter on a 2-yard touchdown pass from O'Korn to tight end Sean McKeon.
