Ohio State found itself in a close one against Northwestern on Saturday. Hanging onto a 24-20 late in the fourth quarter, the Buckeyes faced a third-and-10, and quarterback J.T. Barrett sealed the deal with an impressive run to pick up the first down:

Following the big run, the Buckeyes picked up another first down courtesy of an 11 yard dash from Mike Weber. That would be all she wrote, as the Buckeyes managed to run out the clock and win the game 24-20.

Barrett ended the game with 223 passing yards and another 71 yards on the ground. He didn't have a touchdown on the day, as Weber took care of that with two scores of his own.

Ohio State improved to 7-1 with the win over the Wildcats.
