Justin Fields continues to fight for the reinstatement of the fall Big Ten football season, but he says he hasn't given much thought to his future if a fall season does not happen.

In an interview with Good Morning America on Wednesday, Fields said he has not yet considered whether he will play a spring college football season if it comes to fruition, acknowledging that the situation is too in flux to make a decision right now.

"Right now I'm just taking it day by day," Fields said. "One thing I've learned over this whole process is that things can change daily. So I've kinda just taken each day at a time, so I haven't really thought about that, but hopefully, I'll come up with a decision if that happens, and just pray about it, really."

However, Fields has not yet given up on playing a fall season, and his appearance on Good Morning America was his latest move in an effort to save the college football season, as he explained his position and why he and his teammates would feel safer with a season than without it due to the safety measures in place around the football facilities.

In addition to his Good Morning America appearance, Fields has sent a flurry of Tweets to make his stance clear, helped lead a push for a college football players association with hopes of saving the season, collected hundreds of thousands of signatures on a petition for Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren to reinstate the fall season, and appeared on ESPN Radio to discuss his mission.

He's been leading the charge to save the season, despite the fact that his own financial and football future is secured as an almost guaranteed top-five pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.

"For me, it's really just for the love of the game," Fields said. "My love for Ohio State, my love for my coaches, and my teammates."
