Justin Fields was limited in practice all week, played injured and with a brace that limited his mobility, and struggled to get going in the first half, but he still put together one of the best games of his career.

Fields finished with 300 total yards and three passing touchdowns – all coming in the second half as he led a 14-point comeback – to earn Big Ten Championship Game MVP honors.

"That was as good of an effort as maybe I’ve ever seen from a quarterback, especially an injured quarterback," former Ohio State coach, and now Fox analyst Urban Meyer said of Fields' second-half performance.

Fields led Ohio State to its Big Ten record third-consecutive outright conference championship and becomes the team's third-consecutive Big Ten Championship Game MVP, joining J.K. Dobbins from 2017 and Dwayne Haskins from 2018.
