Justin Fields addresses excitement over B1G schedule release during College GameDay appearance
Justin Fields was one of the key players involved in the B1G bringing back the college football season this fall. His willingness to speak up for his teammates and other players in the B1G was important in the conference reconsidering its decision to postpone.
Saturday morning, the B1G dropped a revised schedule for the 2020 season, an eight-game slate that will start on the weekend of Oct. 24. And in the first game of the season, Ohio State will host Nebraska.
Fields joined ESPN’s College GameDay on Saturday to discuss his excitement about the conference’s decision to reinstate the season, as well as finding out what the new 2020 schedule will look like.

Fields is considered a Heisman Trophy frontrunner, alongside Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence. He helped guide the Buckeyes to a 13-1 record last fall, and he’s hoping to lead the team to a national title this year.
At one point, it looked like Fields would just get one season in Columbus as a player. Now, he’ll get the opportunity to lead the Buckeyes for one more year.
