No. 8 Ohio State rebounded from last week’s loss to No. 2 Oklahoma with a 38-7 win over Army on Saturday afternoon and in the victory, senior quarterback J.T. Barrett broke a Big Ten record that was more than 15 years old.

With his 9-yard touchdown pass to Austin Mack with 7:01 remaining in the game, Barrett became the Big Ten’s all-time leader in career touchdowns. Barrett has accounted for a total of 107 touchdowns (74 passing, 33 rushing) in his Ohio State career, one more than Purdue great, Drew Brees.

Barrett completed 25 of his 33 passes for 270 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing for 32 yards and another touchdown on seven carries.
