You know about Leonard Fournette and Nick Chubb, but don't forget about Ezekiel Elliott.
Ohio State entered the season as the consensus No. 1 team in the nation, but they have looked unimpressive thus far. In fact, traditional conference cellar dweller Indiana gave the Buckeyes all they could handle last week. Luckily for them, they had Elliott.
There may be some question as to whether Cardale Jones or J.T. Barrett is the team's top quarterback, but there's no question who their top running back is. While the team has been unimpressive, Elliott has been anything but. He put Ohio State on his back rushing for 274 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Buckeyes to a narrow win over the Hoosiers.
Where would the No. 1 team be without their No. 1 running back?
For those following along, Elliott did not crack the Heisman Hopeful list last week. That's because it's hard to see any running backsurpassing Fournette and Chubb. While Fournette has been pounding weak defenses and Chubb disappeared against Alabama, Elliott can no longer be ignored given how important he has been to Buckeyes this season.
