COLUMBUS, Ohio – Quarterback Justin Fields, who earlier this week was named the Big Ten’s Offensive Player of the Year and Quarterback of the Year, added another honor to his resume on Thursday when he was selected as a finalist for the Manning Award, which honors the nation’s top quarterback. The winner will be announced following the College Football Playoff National Championship Game in January.
Fields currently leads the nation in completion percentage (78.1) and has a 15-to-3 touchdown to interception ratio in five games. His passer efficiency rating of 196.1 is second only to Alabama’s Mac Jones and he’s currently averaging 281.4 yards per game, which leads the Big Ten and is 15th best in the country.
