Facing the No. 1 pass defense in the country, Ohio State redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins broke a Big Ten single-season passing record against Michigan.

On a 10-yard pass to redshirt sophomore tight end Luke Farrell, Haskins broke the single-season Big Ten passing yards record, surpassing former Purdue quarterback Curtis Painter’s record of 3,985 yards set in 2006.

This season, Haskins already has broken the single season Ohio State record for most touchdowns (36) and passing yards (3,330) in a single season.

The redshirt sophomore quarterback also broke the record for most completions (49), most pass attempts (73) and most passing yards (470) in a single game in Ohio State’s 49-20 loss to Purdue on Oct. 20. Haskins also threw six touchdowns on Oct. 6 against Indiana, tying Barrett and Kenny Guiton for the most by an Ohio State quarterback in a single game.
