J.T. Barrett's OVI Case Resolved, Ohio State Quarterback's License Suspended

The OVI case of Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett has been resolved. 

A Franklin County judge ruled this morning that Barrett's license has been suspended for 180 days and he has to pay a $400 fine, according to the Columbus Dispatch. He also has to complete a three-day alcohol education program. 

Barrett, 20, was cited for an OVI early Oct. 31. He reportedly blew a .099 on a breathalyzer test that measured his blood-alcohol level. Drivers in Ohio under the age of 21 can be cited if they're above a .02.

Ohio State and the Illini are set to kick off at 12 p.m. E.T.
