Ohio State QB Justin Fields named B1G Championship Game Most Valuable Player
Justin Fields is hoisting some hardware after a magnificent performance in Saturday’s B1G Championship Game.
Fields threw for 299 yards and three touchdowns while completing 19-of-31 pass attempts, leading Ohio State to a 34-21 victory over Wisconsin in Indianapolis on Saturday night. That was good enough to win MVP honors for the game.
Ohio State has now won the B1G title three years in a row, the first program to do that since the conference split into divisions in 2011. The Buckeyes improved to 13-0 on the season, becoming the first Power Five team to go undefeated with a nine-game conference schedule.
Fields has been a huge part of that success this season, throwing 37 touchdown passes with just one interception coming into Saturday’s B1G Championship Game. He also accounted for 10 rushing scores and completed over 68 percent of his passes.
With the win over Wisconsin, Ohio State will head to the College Football Playoff for a chance to compete for a national title. Seeding will be determined on Sunday.
