COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) The number five and Ezekiel Elliott are linked like scarlet and gray are associated with Ohio State.
Wearing No. 15, the junior running back had touchdown runs of 55, 65 and 75 yards against Indiana last Saturday to help the top-ranked Buckeyes to a 34-27 win and a 5-0 record. He also reignited talk of Ohio State's unique streak of Heisman Trophy winners.
Beginning in 1955 with Howard "Hopalong" Cassady, an OSU running back has won the Heisman every 20 years. Archie Griffin was voted his unprecedented second award in 1975 and Eddie George followed in 1995, among the seven total winners for the school.
