Ohio State Buckeyes running back Ezekiel Elliott is playing in his final collegiate game. Yet, he had one message for the NCAA before his final game was over.

With 4:55 left in the first half, Elliott scored on a one-yard rushing touchdown. Shortly after his touchdown, he pulled up his jersey into his signature crop-top.

However, the NCAA previously banned this, so this was Elliott’s way of protesting their decision.

The NCAA announced in March of 2015 that players would no longer be able to wear crop-top jerseys during games. This decision was targeted at Elliott, who did it the previous two years at Ohio State.

The NCAA ruled officials will treat illegal equipment issues – such as jerseys tucked under the shoulder pads or exposed back pads – by making the player leave the field for at least one play. The equipment must be corrected for the player to return to the game. The play may remain in the game if his team takes a timeout to correct the equipment issue.

Elliott stayed in the game, as he had another one-yard rushing touchdown nearly three minutes later. The Buckeyes lead the Notre Dame Fighting Irish 28-14 in the BattleFrog Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Arizona from the University of Phoenix Stadium.
