It’s been thirteen months since Justin Fields threw his first interception against a B1G opponent.

Fields sailed a pass too far into Michigan State coverage that October afternoon in 2019, and Spartan cornerback Josiah Scott picked it off.

In his 10 conference games since, Fields hadn’t thrown a pick, and only had two overall – both in the College Football Playoff semifinal loss to Clemson last December.

The streak ended Saturday afternoon against Indiana.

Hoosier cornerback Jamar Johnson jumped in front of a Fields pass at the 10:24 mark in the first quarter of the Buckeyes game with Indiana, to end Fields’ interception free streak.

Fields entered the game with as many touchdown passes (11) as incompletions. He hadn’t thrown a pick all season and also had completed all 19 passes he’s thrown in three 1st quarters this season.

So, it’s a big deal for the Hoosier defense.

Fields led Ohio State down the field for an early touchdown, needing just two plays to get an early 7-0 advantage on Indiana. But after the Hoosier defense settled in, they appear to be ready for the challenge.
