Remember all that talk about the Oregon Ducks having their way with the Ohio State Buckeyes in tonight’s NCAA Football National Championship game? They must not have consulted Ezekiel Elliott.
Elliott ran for his third touchdown of the game with 9:44 left in the fourth quarter. The touchdown extended the Buckeyes lead to 15 over the Oregon Ducks.
So much for Heisman trophy winning quarterback Marcus Mariota being the star of this game. Elliott has 223 yards on the ground to this point.
