Today was the final home game of the season for Ohio State, meaning it was the last game ever at Ohio Stadium for the Buckeyes' seniors and NFL Draft entrants.

Ohio State star defensive lineman Dre'Mont Jones appears to be in that group.

Jones, a redshirt junior, has one season of eligibility remaining, but he appears to be set on leaving early for the NFL Draft.

The Buckeyes' star referred to today's game as his last one at Ohio Stadium.

Eleven Warriors' Dan Hope had more on what Jones said: "It’s so much emotions behind this win, because given what people were saying about us, it’s hard to really explain in words how I feel. It’s my last game in the Shoe, and I got 4 Gold Pants now," Jones told reporters.

Ohio State has at least two games remaining on the season. The Buckeyes will take on Northwestern in the Big Ten Championship Game next Saturday. Ohio State will then either head to the College Football Playoff or to a bowl game.

Stay tuned.
