Thanks to Justin Fields' legs, Ohio State marches 91 yards on Penn State to take early lead

Penn State received the opening kickoff. Its first possession resulted in a punt. The Nittany Lions pinned the Buckeyes back at their own 9-yard-line, which figured to put their defense in a good position.
However, Ohio State didn’t care about that. The Buckeyes converted both third-down conversions they were faced with and quarterback Justin Fields was using his legs to do plenty of damage:
