Found this on Ohio State's instagram, who has been posting a number of stat comparisons between 2014 and 2015 offensive numbers. They did one with Zeke's statistics, and while I know Zeke really went off later in the year, but I was surprised at how much better his stats are through 7 games this season.

2014 through 7 games: 
117 Carries
640 yards
5 TDs
5.5 YPC

2015:
148 Carries
988 yards
11 TDs
6.7 YPC

Much has been made about Zeke's workload this year and ensuring he's not overworked before our late season run. I was interested to see he only has 31 more carries at this point than last season, and an astounding 348 more yards and 6 more TDs. Zeke is on pace this season (if we play 15 games, as we did last year) to rush for: 317 carries, 2117 yards, 24 TD. That would put him 3rd all time in carries in a season (Byers 336 in '84, George 328 in '95), 1st all time in yards in a season, and T2 for TDs in a season (Pete Johnson 25 in '75, George 24 in '95)
