Justin Fields jinxed by the media

Justin Fields had never thrown an interception in his college career — at Georgia and Ohio State — before Saturday night’s game against Michigan State.

The sophomore signal caller prides himself on taking care of the ball, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. So last week, Fields was asked about his lack of interceptions.

Well, after his first career pick against Michigan State, Fields had a joke for the media.

“I have mixed emotions about it because it was my first pick, but it was also like, it’s football,” Fields said. “So it happens. I wasn’t really frustrated from it. I think you all jinxed me about it talking about it so much last week, but it’s all good. Just got to move on to the next game.”

Winning the game made it easy for Fields to make a joke about throwing his first interception. But the next-play mentality that came with the joke is a good sign for Ohio State, even after a turnover.
