Fields and Victor.

Plenty of players shined in Ohio State's 56-21 win over Rutgers, but four Buckeyes were singled out as players of the game for their performances.

Quarterback Justin Fields and receiver Binjimen Victor split the offensive player of the game honors while Shaun Wade and Dallas Gant earned defensive and special teams player of the game honors, respectively.

Fields finished the game with a career-high 305 yards through the air, throwing for four touchdowns on a 15-for-19 passing performance. He also ran for 30 yards on three carries.

Victor finished the game with two touchdowns on five receptions – tying career-highs in both categories – racking up 68 receiving yards, which is 11 yards away from his career-high total of 79 yards. 

Wade finished the game with three total tackles, but made his biggest play of the game on just the second play from scrimmage, tipping a ball into the air to himself and pulling down the interception. He also forced a fumble on Rutgers' second possession.

Gant contributed both on special teams and as a reserve linebacker, finishing with five total tackles and one tackle for loss.
