GLENDALE, Ariz. - Ohio State's NFL-bound defensive end Joey Bosa was ejected from the Fiesta Bowl in the first quarter for targeting.

The penalty came when Bosa lowered his head and hit Notre Dame quarterback DeShone Kizer in the midsection with the crown of his helmet with 5:26 left in the first quarter. The contact occurred well after Kizer had released the ball.

Bosa and Ohio State teammate running back Ezekiel Elliott announced Thursday that they would make themselves available for the NFL draft.

The 6-foot-7, 275-pound Bosa was a second-team AP All-American and, for the second year in a row, was voted Big Ten defensive lineman of the year.

Scouts consider Bosa a potential top-10 draft pick, possibly even as No. 1.
