Ezekiel Elliott will forever have a reminder of Ohio State's unforgettable 2014 college football season.

That's because Elliott sports a fresh tattoo on his left arm that commemorates the Buckeyes' national championship. He posted a picture of it on Instagram on Saturday night.

The ink is very detailed, featuring Ohio State's Block "O," a Buckeye leaf and a Buckeye nut, all centered on his upper arm, in addition to the College Football Playoff Trophy (bicep), the Gateway Arch (side of arm), a nod to his St. Louis roots, and Elliott's No. 15 (tricep).

Elliott was as important as any player in leading Ohio State to the first national championship of the playoff era.

The star running back ran for a Big Ten title game record 220 yards, on 20 carries, to help the Buckeyes make the inaugural playoff. He didn't slow down in the playoff, torching then-No. 1 Alabama for 230 yards, also on 20 carries, in the Sugar Bowl, before ripping off a national title game record 246 yards vs. then-No. 2 Oregon. Elliott scored eight touchdowns, to boot, in the three postseason games.
