Things weren't looking good for Ohio State going into halftime at the Big Ten Championship game against Northwestern. Already trailing by four points late in the second quarter, the Buckeyes were in the midst of a solid drive, but quarterback Justin Fields threw an interception to Brandon Joseph.

It wasn't just an average interception, but an acrobatic one-hand snag. It was Joseph's sixth on the season.

Fields completed 9 of his 20 pass attempts for 101 yards and zero touchdowns in the first half. Northwestern led 10-6 at halftime.

In typical Buckeye fashion, they rebounded in the second half scoring 16 unanswered points and won 22-10. Running back Trey Sermon had a terrific outing Saturday, rushing for 339 yards on 29 carries and scoring two touchdowns.
