Player of the Game: J.T. Barrett
In his first start since last year’s Michigan game, Barrett was everything coach Urban Meyer had hoped for and more. He was 14/18 passing for 223 yards and 3 touchdowns. Barrett also added 13 carries for 101 yards and two touchdowns, giving him 5 total scores on the night. With Barrett at quarterback, this Ohio State offense is every defensive coordinator’s nightmare and this game showed exactly why.

Play of the Game: Braxton Miller’s 45 yard Circus Catch
Miller must have been watching game film of Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge. Miller, who is still adjusting to his new role as a H-back, made the grab on a pass that bounced between him and a Rutgers defender a couple of times. At one point the football was between his legs. Somehow as the players hit the ground, the ball fell right into Miller’s hands for a catch.
Under the Radar Player of the Game: Joey Bosa
How can Bosa be under the radar? How can an All-American not be a noticeable part of the game? Throw away the first drive of the game, the Rutgers offense was completely ineffective. Bosa was a big part of that.
With DL Tommy Schutt out for a few weeks with a wrist injury, Bosa saw more reps on the interior than he typically does and was a monster off of the edge on 3rd down situations. Bosa made a play in the first half where he beat two separate Rutgers lineman to notch a sack. The sack gave him 24.5 for his career, which tied him for the most among active players.
