With apologies to the NFL and the Wild Card Playoff round, the best football player this week came from Ohio State. The Buckeyes sophomore Ezekiel Elliott lit up the renown Alabama Crimson Tide defense in a 42-35 Sugar Bowl victory in what will go down as one of the greatest games in Ohio State's rich football history. A week after breezing through (20 carries for 220 yards) a seemingly non-existent Wisconsin defense to propel his team to the first ever College Football Playoff, Elliott outdid himself with 20 carries for 230 yards on the bowl's biggest stage. Both weeks he had a run over 80 yards, both weeks he scored two TD. Worthy of our Sportsman of the Week!
