Nick Bosa borrows brother's shrug celebration

While Ohio State lost one of its best defensive players in school history to the NFL draft in Joey Bosa, fans took solace knowing that another Bosa was coming to take his place.

As Saturday's win over Tulsa proved, the two may be more alike than anyone thought.

In the final minutes of the rain-soaked contest, true freshman Nick Bosa sacked Tulsa's quarterback, forcing a fumble which was recovered by the Buckeyes. Then, in a moment of tribute to the now-San Diego Charger, Nick pulled out his older brother's shrug celebration as he jogged off the field.

Nick Bosa has some big shoes to fill to replace his brother's incredible 26 sacks in three years wearing scarlet and gray, but he can check one off the list. Only 25 to go.
