Ezekiel Elliott’s performance against Indiana this evening had a specific feel to it – a Heisman Trophy-type feel.
The Ohio State running back totaled 274 yards and three touchdowns during the Buckeyes’ 34-27 victory against Indiana. He had touchdown runs of 55, 65 and 75 yards. It’s as good a performance as we’ve seen from a college football player this season.
Elliott is apparently thinking about the trophy, too. He posted the following photo on Twitter after the game. He later deleted the tweet.
That photo, coincidentally, is from Ohio State’s game against Indiana last season.
The Buckeyes are set to host Maryland next Saturday. Elliott should be able to really add to his Heisman Trophy campaign in that contest.
