Another one?! Indiana picks off Justin Fields in the first quarter, again
Indiana has captured lightning in a bottle.
The Hoosiers picked off Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields not once, but twice in the first quarter on Saturday. Prior to this game, he didn’t have any interceptions in 2020.
Here’s the second INT, which took several deflections:

However, this was a theme of the first quarter in Columbus: Indiana getting pressure on Fields. The Hoosiers sacked the Heisman hopeful multiple times and made him uncomfortable throughout the opening stanza.
Aside from a 65-yard touchdown pass to Garrett Wilson, Fields and the Buckeyes struggled to move the ball on Indiana’s defense early on.
That interception was the 13th of Indiana’s season so far.
Indiana and Ohio State both entered this game undefeated. The winner will have an upper hand in the race for the Big Ten East Championship.
