Ohio State star defensive lineman Joey Bosa’s college career came to an untimely end after he was ejected in the first quarter following a targeting penalty, so it’s only fitting that Bosa got emotional when celebrating with his teammates after the Buckeyes defeated Notre Dame 44-28.
Pictures and video of Bosa holding back tears were posted to social media.

One can only imagine how hard it must have been for Bosa to have to watch his team win without him, but he has a national championship and plenty of great memories to cherish for the rest of his life. Next for him is the NFL, where he should easily be a top-five pick if not the first overall.
