GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Ezekiel Elliott bulldozed his way into the end zone in the first half, showing off his strength as Ohio State's drive capper.
He flashed his speed in the second, becoming the show stopper as he raced up the middle for a long run.
Those skills should translate well in the NFL. They certainly worked out for the Buckeyes over the past three seasons.
Elliott ran for 149 yards and matched a Fiesta Bowl record with four touchdowns to close the curtain on his college career, sparking No. 7 Ohio State's prolific offense in a 44-28 win over Notre Dame on Friday.
