COLLEGE PARK, Md.— Even with only 11 games under his belt as a starter, Ohio State redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins has made history.

Haskins passed J.T. Barrett for the most passing touchdowns in a single season in Ohio State history with 36 scores through the air on the year. Haskins broke the record on a 3-yard touchdown pass to junior wide receiver Binjimen Victor in the fourth quarter against Maryland.

The touchdown was Haskins’ third of the game, and tied the game at 45 with 40 seconds to go in the fourth quarter.

Earlier in the game, Haskins also passed former Ohio State quarterback Joe Germaine for the most passing yards in program history. Germaine had 3,330 yards in the 1998 season.

Haskins has had a record-breaking year for the Buckeyes, passing Art Schlichter with a 470-yard passing performance in a losing effort to Purdue. In that game, Haskins also broke the record for completions (49) and pass attempts (73) against the Boilermakers.

Against Indiana, Haskins tied Barrett and Kenny Guiton’s record for most passing touchdowns in Ohio State history in a single game with six.

Haskins has at least two games to extend his record, with matchups against No. 4 Michigan and a future bowl game still to come.
