Justin Fields' Ohio State debut was a record-breaking one.
The former five-star prospect played his first game as a Buckeye on Saturday and finished with five total touchdowns – the most of any player in history during their Ohio State debut.
Fields finished Ohio State's 45-21 win 18-for-25 passing for 232 yards and four touchdowns, with 61 yards and a touchdown on 12 attempts, including a 51-yard touchdown run on his first carry.

To be totally fair, this is not Fields' college debut, just his Ohio State debut and his first start. Fields played in 12 games for Georgia as a true freshman last season, and made his Buckeye debut as a sophomore this season.
But it's impressive, nonetheless.
Comparably, eventual Heisman Finalist Dwayne Haskins threw for five touchdowns in his first start against Oregon State last season.
