Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett Suspended 1 Game After Citation

Ohio State sophomore quarterback J.T. Barrett was just named the starting signal-caller last week ahead of the team's game against Penn State. It looks like next week, the Buckeyes will be going back to Cardale Jones - but not by choice.

Barrett, who was cited early Saturday morningfor driving a motor vehicle while impaired, has been suspended by Ohio State for one game. He'll miss next Saturday's contest against Minnesota. OSU has a bye today.
