In sync: Justin Fields unleashes perfectly placed deep bomb for beautiful TD to Chris Olave
It sure looks like Chris Olave and Justin Fields are on the same page in the Sugar Bowl!
The Ohio State duo unfortunately combined for the game-sealing play in last season’s College Football Playoff. As Olave broke off his route, Fields threw the ill-fated pass that would be picked off to end that game.
Fortunately, Fields and Olave have not had any such drawback in this year’s game against Clemson. In fact, the two have connected for some big-time plays with Fields dropping in a beautiful pass for Ohio State’s latest touchdown.
It came with Olave running nothing other than a deep post pattern down the middle of the field. He was able to get all the way behind Clemson’s secondary, a unit that appeared to seriously underestimate the arm strength of Fields.
Fields dropped a throw in with pinpoint accuracy for the touchdown, made even more impressive by the fact that the ball traveled 60 yards in the air.
