SHARE Video: Ezekiel Elliot hurdles over NIU defender

There are few running backs as talented as Ohio State’s Ezekiel Elliot in college football, but Saturday he proved that there are few players in college football as athletic.

On a routine running play, Zeke took a hand-off and scaled most of a human being. Northern Illinois corner 6-foot-1 Albert Smalls squared up for a tackle on the Buckeyes rusher but whiffed as Elliot jumped over his head while he was bending over in anticipation.

Whenever Ohio State needs a big play, Zeke is usually ready deliver in ways only he knows how. If he keeps this up, he’ll be a staple in the Heisman discussion.
