Justin Fields discusses preparation for Northwestern defense in sitdown with Joel Klatt
Ohio State will have its toughest game yet this Saturday when the Buckeyes face No. 14 Northwestern in the B1G Championship game.
All eyes will be on quarterback Justin Fields, who has been a rock for the Buckeyes this season. Coming into this game, he has thrown for 1,407 yards with 15 touchdowns to three interceptions. He has also rushed for over 200 yards with five rushing touchdowns.
Fields spoke to Joel Klatt from FOX Sports Tuesday evening about prepping for the Wildcats strong defense and this is what he had to say:
“Yeah, Northwestern, they’re a very well-coached team. They’re very disciplined on defense. They don’t make many mistakes so what we’re going to have to do is go out and execute on all levels,” said Fields. “Third down, first down, second down, and kind of just stay on schedule because that’s what they’re going to try and do is get you off schedule.”
