Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback J.T. Barrett won the Big Ten’s Griese-Brees Quarterback of the Year award Wednesday, bringing the award to Ohio State for the fourth time in five years.

Barrett, a redshirt junior, tallied 3,275 yards of total offense (2,428 pass, 847 rush). He completed 214 of his 346 passes and only five interceptions. He was responsible for 33 touchdowns (passing and rushing), the most in the Big Ten.

Barrett also won the award in 2014. Braxton Miller was honored in 2012 and 2013.

In addition to Barrett and Elflein, hybrid back Curtis Samuel and guard Billy Price made the All-Big Ten First team. Weber and offensive tackle Jamarco Jones were named to the second team.
