The No. 1-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes went into halftime down two touchdowns after being shocked by Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game. Then, Ryan Day’s team made adjustments in the locker room.
Those adjustments worked wonders, as the Buckeyes dominated the third quarter and picked up steam in the fourth. The end result was a 34-21 comeback win that secures Ohio State’s position as a College Football Playoff team.
Here, we take a look at the biggest winners and losers from Ohio State’s comeback win over Wisconsin during Saturday’s Big Ten Championship Game.
Winner: Justin Fields is pretty darn good on one leg
Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields injured his left knee last Saturday against Michigan, suffering an MCL sprain. He wore a brace on that leg this Saturday during the Big Ten Championship Game, and it appeared to give him trouble early on.
After a rough first quarter, Fields started to get into a bit of a groove. Then, he and his receivers got into a tremendous rhythm in the third quarter, and kept right on grooving in the fourth.
