Ezekiel Elliott came into the 2015 season as a top candidate to win the 2015 Heisman Trophy and he is showing why already this evening against the Virginia Tech Hokies.
On the Ohio State Buckeyes’ second drive, Elliott broke an 80-yard touchdown run to extend his teams lead to 14-0. It is obvious that the Buckeyes are out to prove a point tonight with all of the media analysts talking about how the Hokies could knock them off once again this year like they did last. Elliott doesn’t want that to happen and he has made a major impact on the game already.
It will be interesting to see what else Elliott brings to the field this evening, but he is obviously locked in and ready to produce for the Buckeyes. Urban Meyer has to be very happy with the way his team has played early on tonight.
