Tomorrow is the Big Ten Championship Game and the Ohio State Buckeyes get a chance to claim the crown for a third straight year. But Ohio State QB Justin Fields has reportedly been dealing with a knee injury leading up to the game.
Earlier today, head coach Ryan Day provided an update that Fields would be starting. But there was little info on whether he would be limited or otherwise hindered by the knee issue.
In a final update to the media, Day made it clear that Fields is 100-percent with no hindrances heading into the game.
Day said that Fields is “100 percent and ready to roll” against Wisconsin tomorrow.

Fields has been one of the biggest breakout stars of the 2019 season, and at many times has looked like a Heisman contender.
The sophomore QB threw 37 touchdowns versus only one interception in his first year and added another ten touchdowns on the ground. His 37 passing touchdowns are third in the nation.
In total he’s passed for 2,654 yards while completing 68.2-percent of his passes.
But the Big Ten Championship Game will be by far the biggest game Justin Fields has played. He may have played well against the Badgers earlier this year, but there will be little room for error at Lucas Oil Stadium.
