XN Sports Heisman Watch: Gordon, Barrett Putting Pressure On Mariota


Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett – Barrett has been a revelation for the Buckeyes this season and has helped put them in the mix for a playoff spot. Ohio State is one of the most improved teams in the country since the start of the season and Barrett is a big reason why. He has thrown 33 TD passes, second in the country, to go along with 2,658 yards passing while adding 849 yards and nine TDs on the ground. With games left against Michigan and the Big Ten title game, Barrett is likely to finish with 3,000 yards passing, 1,000 yards rushing and an invitation to New York as a Heisman finalist.
