Wyatt Davis.

Wyatt Davis is cooking, and for defensive linemen, there's only one item on the menu.

Ohio State did its own spin on the classic ESPN "This is SportsCenter" ad campaign on Monday, and the Buckeyes' All-American offensive lineman get the staring role.

Davis played his familiar part of serving up pancakes to unsuspecting defensive linemen, except this time they were literal pancakes – the golden and delicious kind you eat with syrup.

Not only is this a fantastic rendition of the famous commercials, it's also a pretty clear homage to another Buckeye All-American offensive lineman who basically invented the pancake block.

To promote his Heisman Trophy campaign in 1996, Orlando Pace made a famous promotional video where he taught us all the art of the pancake.

Davis might be a little more than a dark horse for the Heisman Trophy, but the tribute is amazing and we certainly hope this is only the start of an incredible new series.
