Scariest thing about Ohio State's offense? Justin Fields gives his answer
It has been all treat with no tricks yet for Ohio State to start the year, the Buckeyes improving to 2-0 after a complete win over Penn State on Saturday night.
For Justin Fields, the Ohio State quarterback, it was another performance that puts him squarely in the argument as one of the nation’s top players. Fields was 28-of-34 for 318 yards with four touchdowns in the 38-24 win at the Nittany Lions.
After the game, Fields was asked by ESPN a Halloween themed question, appropriate given that the Buckeyes rolled to the win on the night when ghosts and goblins are celebrated. The question thrown to Fields was what was the scariest part of the Ohio State offense so far through two weeks.
“I think everything, really we don’t have a weakness so I would say, you know, just everything,” Fields said.

Fields, who has yet to throw an interception this season, has 594 passing yards and six touchdowns through the first two games of 2020. With Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence sidelined this past weekend due to a COVID-19 diagnosis, Fields may have vaulted to become the frontrunner for the Heisman and the Maxwell Award based off Saturday’s performance.
Ohio State hosts Rutgers on Saturday. The Scarlet Knights, 1-1, lost to Indiana on Saturday after a surprising win at Michigan State to start the season.
As for the other pressing question for Fields to address, the Ohio State quarterback provided an update on his dog. Uno has become a furry celebrity, enhancing Fields’ own burgeoning presence nationally.
Despite Fields being at State College on Saturday night, some of his teammates chipped in to help Uno celebrate Halloween.
“There are actually guys that are hurt right now so he went trick or treating with them. He’s all good. He got his candy and treats,” Fields said. “Yeah, he’s good.”
