Elliott's touchdown came after the teams traded punts. The Buckeyes were pinned inside their own 5-yard line but marched 97 yards on 10 plays.

It was Elliot's 15th touchdown of the season. He burst on the scene with a combined 450 rushing yards in the Buckeyes' final two games before the title game.
