Elliott went off following Saturday's loss to the Spartans.
Ohio State’s unbeaten season ended with a surprising 17-14 loss to Michigan State on Saturday. Despite the Spartans missing starting quarterback Connor Cook, coach Mark Dantonio’s team found a way to win and altered the outlook of the Big Ten Championship and College Football Playoff picture.
The primary culprit in Saturday’s loss for the Buckeyes was an offense that generated just 132 yards.
After the loss, running back Ezekiel Elliott sounded off on the team’s play-calling. Elliott had only 33 yards on 12 carries against the Spartans. Needless to say, the junior isn’t happy:
