Ezekiel Elliott paid homage to Joey Bosa and the ejected defensive end responded perfectly.
The Fiesta Bowl on Friday between the Ohio State Buckeyes and Notre Dame Fighting Irish has become the Ezekiel Elliott show, as the Buckeyes running back is putting on a heck of a performance in his final game. In the third quarter, he scored his fourth touchdown of the game, once again showcasing how great he really is.
Now, after this fourth touchdown though, he decided that he would give a little shout out to someone. After he crossed the plane, he threw up the arms for the infamous “Bosa Shrug.” This was a pretty awesome moment seeing as Bosa was ejected in the first quarter of this one for targeting.
With Bosa out of the game and allowed to toy around with his phone in the locker room, he made sure that this gesture did not go unnoticed. After Zeke busted out the 48-yard run, Bosa responded with this.
Hey, that was just one proud teammate recognizing another, showing how close this Buckeyes team really is and why they’ve been so successful the past two seasons.
With there being a lot of time left in this one, it’ll be interesting to see whether or not Elliott hits the shrug again.
