COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - J.T. Barrett took over at quarterback in the second quarter for No. 1 Ohio State after Cardale Jones threw two interceptions that helped Northern Illinois build a 10-3 lead on the Buckeyes.

Jones was picked off on Ohio State’s first possession on a badly overthrown ball and the Huskies turned it into a touchdown.

In the second quarter, Jones tried to squeeze a pass in between defenders, passing up an open receiver underneath, and was intercepted again by Shawn Lurry in Buckeyes territory.

Ohio State held the Huskies to a field goal to make it 10-3. Barrett entered on the next drive, and the Buckeyes went three-and-out.

On their next drive, Barrett hooked up with Michael Thomas for a 23-yard touchdown to tie the game at 10.

Barrett also started the second half.
