Justin Fields and the Ohio State offense is unstoppable right now. The Buckeyes jumped out to a dominant 38-0 lead in the first half versus Nebraska on Saturday night. Any time Fields has the ball in his hands, something special happens.

The Buckeyes are thrilled to have such a special talent. After all, Fields was a Georgia Bulldog a year ago. The elite QB prospect battled with Georgia's Jake Fromm to be the starter. But Fromm's experience and playbook knowledge won out.

Through four games, though, there's no question which quarterback is playing better football right now. And one college football analyst made an interesting point on Saturday night.

He's got a point. Both QBs play for really elite teams. While Fromm has played well this season, Fields is putting up video game like numbers.

If Fields had stuck around at Georgia, would he have eventually won the starting job?

It's difficult to say. But as of right now, both teams are happy with their quarterbacks.

The transfer portal has introduced plenty of interesting scenarios in college football. Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State and Oklahoma look like the four best teams in the country. If fans are lucky, there could be some really intriguing playoff matchups in regards to quarterbacks playing against their former teams.

The season's still early. But Georgia may be wishing it was able to keep Fields around for another season. Georgia's loss, Ohio State's gain.
