Ohio State bounced back after its first regular season loss under Urban Meyer with a blowout of Kent State 66-0.

Redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett rebounded from a poor game against Virginia Tech with a school record tying six touchdown passes – five in the first half – to lead the 22nd-ranked Buckeyes to an easy win.

"Where are we and do I like where we're at?" head coach Urban Meyer said post game. "You still have a sick feeling in your stomach about last week. But we're moving forward."

Ohio State had lost to Virginia Tech 35-21 the week earlier.

"We had a pretty good idea what they were going to do," said Barrett. "We worked on a game plan all week and it turned out pretty good for us."

Middletown product Jalin Marshall caught one of Barrett's six touchdowns. It was Marshall's first career touchdown at Ohio State.

Ohio State has now won 39 consecutive games over in-state opponents. The Buckeyes last lost to an Ohio opponent in 1921. They next play UC in Columbus on September 27.
