J.T. Barrett Suspended for Minnesota Game for Misdemeanor OVI Citation
By Tony Gerdeman
J.T. Barrett was cited Friday night just north of campus

COLUMBUS — Ohio State starting quarterback J.T. Barrett has been suspended for next week's game against Minnesota after being cited for a misdemeanor OVI early Saturday morning.

From OSU's release: Ohio State University student-athlete J.T. Barrett was cited by Columbus police Saturday morning at a campus area check point with a misdemeanor offense of OVI. Barrett has been suspended by head coach Urban Meyer from playing in Ohio State’s game against Minnesota on Nov. 7.

Per a report from ESPN after speaking with OSU AD Gene Smith, because this is a misdemeanor, it does not fall under Ohio State's drug and alcohol policy. Instead, Barrett's suspension for the Minnesota game — and any further time missed — is Urban Meyer's decision.

Cardale Jones will now step back in for the Buckeyes.
