Zeke sweeps national player of the week awards
This just in — Ezekiel Elliott’s 274-yard performance against Indiana was impressive.
As a result, the accolades kept coming five days later.
The Buckeye tailback picked up his THIRD national award for his record-breaking day in Bloomington. Elliott earned the Maxwell Football Club’s national offensive player of the week on Thursday. That, of course, followed up the Walter Camp national offensive player of the week and the Football Writers Association of America’s AutoNation national offensive player of the week awards.
And just for good measure, Zeke picked up his first B1G Offensive Player of the Week award this season.
The B1G’s leading rusher became the first Buckeye to ever record four 200-yard games. He also became the first player in the last 10 years to record three rushing touchdowns of 50-plus yards in a half. That bumped his total to 10 career rushes of 50-plus yards.
Elliott is currently riding a streak of 10 straight 100-yard games, during which he’s racked up 19 touchdowns on over eight yards per carry.
He’ll be in good shape to make it 11 when the Buckeyes take on reeling Maryland on Saturday.
