Justin Fields shares his reaction to Georgia's shocking loss to South Carolina
This was inevitable, but Justin Fields is a college football fan just like anyone else. So of course he saw the upset loss by Georgia to South Carolina last week as Fields and Ohio State were in the midst of an off week on Saturday.
The former Georgia quarterback transferred to Ohio State in the offseason after he played sparingly last season behind Jake Fromm. At Georgia last season, Fields played in 12 of 14 games as a true freshman and was named to the coaches freshman All-SEC Team. He completed 27-of-39 passes for 328 yards and 4 TDs, and also had 4 rushing touchdowns.
“I do feel for those guys, and I know all those guys worked their butts off all last week,” Fields told reporters, according to a video from Colin Hass-Hill. “Especially my boy Rodrigo (Blankenship) because he’s probably one of the hardest workers on that team. When I was there, he stays in the treatment room acting like he was a D-lineman, or in the trenches like that. I definitely feel for those guys, and I hope those guys can bounce back.”
Fields leads the Big Ten with 18 touchdown passes, and has just one interception. He’s completed 69.5 percent of his passes this season, and rushed for 283 yards and 8 touchdowns.
