The former Ohio State star was a fan of Dobbins' performance.

J.K. Dobbins had quite a performance on Saturday night.

Ohio State's true freshman running back had 174 yards on 17 carries in the win over Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game.

It reminded Buckeye fans of a previous Big Ten title game performance - Ezekiel Elliott's 2014 showing. The Dallas Cowboys' star rushed for 220 yards in the 2014 victory.

Elliott was impressed last night.

He didn't end up breaking it, but if Dobbins can stay healthy, a couple of Elliott's marks could fall.
