On New Year’s Day, the Ohio State Buckeyes will battle the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the Fiesta Bowl in a matchup that should result in a fantastic game. Even though neither team ended up where they wanted — College Football Playoff — it’s still an accomplishment for the players.
After the game was announced, two top players decided to start the hype train by reaching out to each other on Twitter.
Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliot tweeted to Notre Dame linebacker Jaylon Smith to give him a shout out. It wasn’t a major exchange, but it was pretty cool nonetheless. It makes it even cooler knowing that not only are these two center pieces of their respective teams, but they will be top picks come April’s NFL draft.
