On Saturday afternoon the Ohio State Buckeyes faced off against the Wisconsin Badgers in a battle of Big Ten powerhouses.

Ohio State took a 10-0 lead into halftime of what turned into a defensive slug-fest. The first 30 minutes showcased the why these two programs boast two of the best defenses in the country.

Ohio State gives up just over eight points per game while Wisconsin matches that with just over seven points allowed per game.

Those defenses failed to show up in the early portion of the third quarter. Both Ohio State and Wisconsin found the endzone for touchdowns to move the score to 17-7.

Following Ohio State's latest touchdown star quarterback Justin Fields appeared to suffer some sort of injury. Although it's unclear what happened, he entered the medical tent after a short run.

The broadcast announced Fields was suffering from a lower right back injury, saying he was battling "tightness."

He came out of the medical tent and was seen bouncing around on the sideline during Ohio State's defensive possession. The star quarterback appears poised to re-enter the game for the Buckeyes.

Stay tuned for the latest on Fields.
