After facing criticism for sometimes forgetting to incorporate one of the best running backs in college football into their offensive scheme, the Buckeyes aren't leaving anything to chance, and Ezekiel Elliott is putting on a clinic. After rushing for three touchdowns in the first half, the Buckeyes found their lead had slimmed to only a touchdown. They needed a score, and badly.
After this long run, Elliott now has four touchdowns, and 121 yards on the day. Will we call this 45 yards through the heart of suburban desert? 45 yards through the heart of post-industrial Indiana? 45 shades of pink on Brian Kelly's face? We'll leave it to you to come up with the best nickname. We'll just be sitting here, watching this sweet touchdown, again and again.
The Bosa homage wasn't lost on the ejected Ohio State star. He took to social media to return the favor to this teammate:
