Six days after having surgery on his right knee, Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett will start Saturday's Big Ten Championship Game against Wisconsin. Eleven Warriors reported the Buckeyes' decision to start Barrett over redshirt freshman Dwayne Haskins as they look to secure a conference title. Tim May of the Columbus Dispatch reported Barrett underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove torn meniscus from his knee and was expected to play against Wisconsin, though it wasn't clear at that point how big his role would be. Barrett left Ohio State's 31-20 win over Michigan last week with a knee injury. Head coach Urban Meyer told reporters after the game the injury involved a cameraman making contact with the quarterback.
