On Saturday afternoon, Ohio State took care of business against Penn State to keep its undefeated season alive. With a 28-17 win, the Buckeyes clinched a spot in the Big Ten title game by winning the Big Ten East.

Even a loss against Michigan next weekend can't keep the Buckeyes from the title game, though Ohio State doesn't plan to lose that one.

In the final minutes of the fourth quarter, Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields appeared to suffer an injury. On a fourth-down play, Fields attempted to escape the Penn State rush.

He was tackled and appeared to have his leg roll awkwardly underneath him. Fields stayed on the ground for a minute before eventually jogging off the field under his own power.

After the game, Ohio State head coach Ryan Day updated the status of his star quarterback.

"He's good," Day said about Fields.

That's great news for the Buckeyes as they head into the final week of the regular season.

Fields is undoubtedly one of the best quarterbacks in the country and pivotal to Ohio State's success this year. The Buckeyes have their sights set on a Big Ten title and potential College Football Playoff berth.

Next up is a trip to Michigan.
