The Buckeyes stuck with a ground and pound offense to get their first conference win of the season against Indiana and along the way, running back Ezekiel Elliott set several school and career records earning him Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week.

Elliott rushed for 274 yards and three touchdowns on 23 attempts with an 11.9 yard average per rush. With a struggling passing game, he has been able to capitalize on his touches and was able to lead the team to victory.

Let the Heisman campaign continue for Elliott, who is still just warming up for the season.
