Update: To those who, for some reason, took Elliott's tweet seriously, he has clarified: it was a joke (like we thought). He will be wearing his usual No. 15 on Saturday.

Earlier: Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott is still hitting on pop superstar Taylor Swift - even though she hasn't responded to any of his advances. Thursday night, hours after first reaching out to Swift on Twitter to ask her on a date, Elliott declared that this Saturday, he'll be wearing No. 13 to honor her. Swift was born on December 13th, for the record.

Ohio State reserve quarterback Stephen Collier chimed in, accusing Elliott of stealing his jersey.

Clearly, it's a joke, and Elliott won't be switching numbers. Well, at least we think that's the case. Maybe if Swift actually responds, he can convince Ohio State to make it happen.
