Ohio State put on an impressive display Saturday night, dismantling Nebraska on the road. Quarterback Justin Fields was efficient and outstanding in the 48-7 win.

Fields completed 15-of-21 passes for 212 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 72 yards and another score. He looks like the star Ohio State hoped it would be getting when Fields transferred in from Georgia.

After the game, Fields told BTN that the 5-0 Buckeyes "definitely got the attention of a lot of people around the nation."

Ohio State has cemented itself as a top-five team so far. Several experts are now talking about the Buckeyes as a potential national champion.

But, the tougher part of the schedule lies ahead. In October, the Buckeyes will play Michigan State and Wisconsin.

Then, they'll finish out the regular season with Penn State and Michigan. Talk about potentially ending on a high note.

The good news for OSU is they are more talented than any of those four teams. Certainly, the Buckeyes should be the Big Ten champion on paper this year.
