Ohio State University quarterback J.T. Barrett has been suspended from playing in next week’s game after police cited him early Saturday on suspicion of operating a motor vehicle while impaired, the school’s athletic department said.
Columbus police cited Barrett, 20, with the misdemeanor offense Saturday morning at a campus-area checkpoint.
Police did not immediately respond to requests for additional information.
Ohio State, ranked No. 1 in the college football polls and the defending national champions, does not have a game this week. It plays Minnesota on November 7.
