Earlier today, TMZ published a video of J.T. Barrett's OVI arrest on Halloween. The video featured the Ohio State quarterback calmly and politely interacting with the police officers, asking them if they could help him. 

Barrett, who was suspended one game for the incident, will return to the field Saturday. He will be the starter against Illinois, Urban Meyer announced earlier this week. 

An Ohio State spokesman has commented on the TMZ video, saying the Buckeyes are aware of it and have moved on. 

Ohio State and Illinois are set to kick off at 12 p.m. E.T. The game will be televised on ABC.
