It took a while for Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Justin Fields to find his rhythm against the Michigan Wolverines. He found it before the end of the first quarter, unleashing a 57-yard touchdown strike to Chris Olave.

On first down from Ohio State’s 43-yard line, Olave broke free after a blown assignment in Michigan’s secondary and found himself wide open down the sideline. Fields recognized the big-play opportunity and delivered a deep strike to hit his go-to receiver in stride for the touchdown.

The Buckeyes’ running game was already experiencing plenty of success early against Michigan’s defense. Now with the passing game hitting its stride and Fields playing with confidence, this game is going to deliver a thrilling shootout that could come down to the finish.
