5 crazy-good stats from Ohio State’s rout of Bowling Green

Here are five notable numbers Ohio State posted while crushing the Falcons 77-10:

1. Ohio State finished with a school-record 776 total yards of offense. The old record of 718 was set against Mount Union in 1930. They broke the 700-yard mark for the fourth time in school history.

2. J.T. Barrett tied the school record for touchdown passes in a game for the second time. He also threw for six TDs against Kent State in 2014 to tie Kenny Guiton’s school record set in 2013 against Florida A&M. Barrett also ran for a touchdown to become the first Ohio State player to account for seven touchdowns in a game.

3. The Buckeyes’ 77 points are the most they have scored in a game since hanging 83 on Iowa in 1950.

4. Barrett became the sixth Ohio State player with at least 50 career touchdown passes. He passed Art Schlichter (50) to move into fifth in school history, one behind Wayne graduate Braxton Miller’s 52. With almost two full seasons of eligibility remaining, Barrett is six passing TD’s shy of the school record held by Bobby Hoying of St. Henry.

5. Ohio State’s 417 passing yards are the most in the Meyer era and fourth-most in school history. The last time Ohio State had over 400 yards passing was at Penn State in 1997 when the Buckeyes had a school-record 459 yards.
