Ezekiel Elliott Shouts Out Michigan State: "Played Their Asses Off Today"

Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott gave a colorful post-game interview after the team's loss to Michigan State Saturday, criticizing the Buckeyes' coaching staff for their play-calling and announcing his intentions to enter the NFL Draft after the season. But on Twitter afterwards, he gave props to the Spartans for their victory.

Elliott shouted out Michigan State, adding that the team "played their asses off" against the Buckeyes. Pretty good sportsmanship.

Ohio State now needs help to play for a Big Ten title. The Spartans would have to lose to Penn State next Saturday, while OSU would need to defeat rival Michigan.
