Barrett, No. 2 Ohio State charge past No. 8 Wisconsin in OT
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- J.T. Barrett threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to leaping receiver Noah Brown in overtime, and No. 2 Ohio State finished off No. 8 Wisconsin with a sack on fourth-and-goal from the 4 for a 30-23 win on Saturday night.
Barrett also ran for two touchdowns for the Buckeyes (6-0, 3-0 Big Ten), who passed their toughest road test of the season.
The touchdown throw gave Barrett his 89th career touchdown passing or rushing, breaking the school record previously held by quarterback Braxton Miller.
The Buckeyes rushed the field after defensive end Tyquan Lewis sacked quarterback Alex Hornibrook to end the thriller.
Just in time too, after school officials warned fans that severe weather was rolling through the area right before the final play.
The Buckeyes opened overtime with Barrett's touch pass to Brown in the corner of the end zone for the go-ahead score.
Barrett finished 17 of 29 for 226 yards with one interception, and ran for 92 yards on 21 carries. Corey Clement ran for 164 yards on 25 carries for Wisconsin (4-2, 1-2).
