J.T. Barrett, QB, Ohio State

WEEK 7 GRADE: A-

Stats: 17-of-29 for 181 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT. 21 carries for 92 yards (4.4 average), 2 TDs. (at Wisconsin)
Skinny: Barrett was clutch in the second half, leading the Buckeyes to a hard-fought road win against Wisconsin. He was very effective as a runner, showing his toughness by fighting for extra yards. His passing numbers would've been more impressive, but the Buckeyes receivers dropped a few balls. He threw a beautiful TD pass to win the game in overtime. His poise is his greatest attribute. It was on display in this contest. If not for a wet ball, red-zone interception earlier in the game, this grade would be higher. -- Daniel Jeremiah
