Do you miss watching Ezekiel Elliott play in person, Ohio State fans? Well, here’s some good news.
The participants of the 2017 Hall of Fame Game were announced Thursday, and Elliott’s Dallas Cowboys will face the Arizona Cardinals in the first preseason game of the NFL season. The game will be part of Hall of Fame weekend in Canton, Ohio, on Aug. 3.

Elliott — who was back in Columbus this week — led the NFL in rushing during his rookie season, yet somehow was not named the Offensive Rookie of the Year.
Of course, there’s no guarantee that Elliott will take the field in the game. But it still gives Ohio State fans the opportunity to see the former Buckeyes star in person and perhaps snag a photo or autograph.
