Barrett will serve the one-game ban on November 7th, when the Buckeyes go up against Minnesota.
The 20-year-old was given a misdemeanor OVI after attempting to avoid a DUI checkpoint. He failed a Breathalyzer test and was released to teammate Cardale Jones. The arrest was first reported by ElevenWarriors.com.
Head coach Urban Meyer is the one who decided Barrett's punishment, but the QB will be eligible to return for the team's November 14th game against Illinois, followed by back-to-back tests against Michigan State and Michigan.
The sophomore was named the started before OSU's 49-7 win over Rutgers last week after Jones started the first seven games. He threw for three TDs and 223 yards in the victory. Barrett regained the job after being the starter for most of 2014 before breaking his ankle in the season finale.
The Buckeyes will go with Jones in the game against the Gophers, and this arrest may have a huge effect on Barrett's playing time. If Jones impresses next week, even when Barrett is back with the team, the now backup may still be taking the snaps.
