Ohio State junior running back Ezekiel Elliott has been named the Big Ten co-Offensive Player of the Week, the league announced Monday. Elliott shares the honor with Indiana quarterback Nate Sudfeld.
Elliott's honor comes after his performance Saturday against arch-rival Michigan, where the St. Louis native ran for 214 yards and two touchdowns in the Buckeyes' 42-13 blowout victory.
So far this season, Elliott has amassed 1,672 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns. Elliott has gained 3,812 yards in his career and moved past Eddie George for No. 2 all time in Ohio State history, trailing only Archie Griffin's 5589.
