Ezekiel Elliott and Michael Thomas Going To Play In NFL Stadiums Where They Killed It As Buckeyes

Ezekiel Elliott and Michael Thomas have yet to play a snap in the NFL, but the former Ohio State stars are already pretty familiar with the stadiums they'll be playing in eight times a season. 

The former Ohio State running back, Elliott, was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys at No. 4 overall. The former Ohio State wide receiver, Thomas, was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the second round. 

During Ohio State's College Football Playoff run in 2014-15, the Buckeyes played in the Saints' and Cowboys' stadiums; the Saints' in the Sugar Bowl victory against Alabama and the Cowboys' in the College Football Playoff championship game against Oregon. 

Thomas did this in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome against Alabama. 

Elliott did this at AT&T Stadium against Oregon.

Their respective NFL teams will be thrilled if they can replicate that success, obviously.
