Ohio State backup QB Chris Chugunov has a hilarious 'challenge he faces' this time of year
Ohio State is blasting every opponent put in front of it this season. The Buckeyes are that good.
With that in mind, their starters don’t necessarily have to be playing all 60 minutes in every game. Again, Ohio State is that good.
Justin Fields, the former 5-star QB recruit from Georgia who transferred over this past offseason, has been as advertised. When the Buckeyes are leading by 40 or 50 points, though, sometimes he hits the bench. A backup has to come in.
Chris Chugunov is one of the backups that has been called upon. So far this season, Chugunov has completed 20-of-27 passes while tossing four touchdowns to zero interceptions. We’ve also played football this season in the months of August, September and October for the most part.
But, now it’s November. On Tuesday, Chugunov was asked what his biggest challenge is.
His response — again, remember, it’s November — was hilarious:

Again, Chugunov is not the star signal caller. He’s often on the bench. And now that it’s starting to snow, get icy and freezing, Chugunov has to find a way to stay warm.
That’s his biggest challenge right now. Not Michigan.
