Two years ago, Joe Burrow was a third-string quarterback at Ohio State.
On Monday night, he capped off one of the most dominant seasons in college football history with a near-perfect performance against Clemson in the College Football Playoff national championship game.
Burrow finished the game with 521 total yards and six total touchdowns to lead his team to the national title.
He didn't do it in a Buckeye uniform, but he still had the support of his former Buckeye teammates the whole way.

Burrow finished the season with a 76.3 percent completion percentage, throwing for 5,671 yards and 60 touchdowns and just six interceptions. He finishes the season with a 204.7 passer rating, becoming the first player in history to break 200 on the season.
Now, with Burrow likely the No. 1 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, it's looking like he'll be returning to the Buckeye State to play for the Cincinnati Bengals.
