INDIANAPOLIS —

No, seriously. The field broke.

After Wisconsin scored a touchdown to pull within one score of Ohio State in the fourth quarter Saturday night, the Big Ten Championship Game was delayed for several minutes after some of the turf in the end zone got pulled up during the scoring play.

FOX reported that Lucas Oil Stadium had new turf put into the end zone prior to the game, and the parts that came up got slightly pulled apart as Ohio State defenders tried to dig their feet down to prevent Wisconsin from scoring.

Because the turf was uneven and extremely unsafe to play on, it took several minutes for the field crew to fix the issue.

Play eventually resumed after a nearly 12-minute delay. Wisconsin attempted a two-point conversion immediately after the fix, which was successful to make the game 24-21 in favor of Ohio State at the time. Ohio State went on to win 27-21.
