Buckeyes hit break with eye on passing improvements

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Now that the suspense is over and Ohio State has secured a spot in the College Football Playoff, the Buckeyes have some time to address their biggest weakness - throwing the ball down the field.

Star quarterback J.T. Barrett is the linchpin of Ohio State's offense for his ability to run and improvise, and his candidacy for Big Ten player of the year is a testament to that.

But too often this season, the Buckeyes' receivers have struggled to get open, or Barrett's passes have been off target. So even with one of the nation's most dynamic quarterbacks, Ohio State hasn't had much in the way of a downfield passing game - something that may need to change to beat Clemson on New Year's Eve.
