The Ohio State Buckeyes took out long-time rival Michigan 42-28 today, but the victory came at a great cost. After racking up 265 total yards and three touchdowns in the first three quarters, QB JT Barrett's leg got caught beneath a tackler on the first play of the fourth. Barrett (a Heisman hopeful with a nation-leading 45 total touchdowns) was carted off the field with an air cast wrapped around his leg.
The initial, unconfirmed diagnosis is a dislocated ankle.
Sources telling me JT Barrett has right ankle dislocation and probable broken bone. Was taken to hospital immediately.— Tim May (@TIM_MAYsports) November 29, 2014
Going into the game today, Ohio State sat at sixth in the College Football Playoff Rankings. They'll play either Wisconsin or Minnesota for the Big 10 title.
