SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Ohio State star running back Ezekiel Elliott won't have his status for the Fiesta Bowl against Notre Dame Jan. 1 changed after receiving a citation for driving with a suspended license, the school said Monday.
The junior from St. Louis reportedly was in a car accident Sunday before the team departed for Arizona, driving while his license was suspended.
"This won't affect his status," a spokesman said in an email to Eleven Warriors.
Columbus' WTTE confirmed that Elliott was charged with driving while his license was under suspension, operating without a license, and a failure to control.
The Buckeyes and Fighting Irish are set for a 1 p.m. kickoff from University of Phoenix Stadium New Year's Day.
