After squeaking into the playoff by pounding Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship with their third string quarterback, Ohio State upset top ranked Alabama in the semifinal. The Buckeyes would face Oregon and the 2014 Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota, but had a future All-American on their roster as well. Running back Ezekiel Elliott posted his third straight 200-yard game with a 246-yard, four touchdown performance. His final score iced the title for the Buckeyes in a 42-20 win over the Ducks.
This beautiful Big Ten Championship ring is one of three that were issued to each player that was a part of Ohio State's memorable run to the National Championship. It measures size 9.5 and was awarded to a former Defensive Back after Ohio State's 10th straight win. The player's last name is on the side of the ring and has been digitally blurred for his privacy.
