Jeff Heuerman made history tonight. 

Ohio State's former tight end became the first football player ever to win both the College Football Playoff and the Super Bowl with Denver's win against Carolina. 

Heuerman, a tight end for the Broncos, missed the 2015 season (his rookie campaign) with a torn ACL, but he's still on the roster, so he'll receive a ring. The third-round draft pick starred for the Buckeyes in 2014.
