 The NCAA has announced they have banned the 'Crop Top' jerseys from being worn during College Football games.

From the NCAA, "Officials will treat illegal equipment issues, such as a jersey 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 player may remain in the game if his team takes a timeout to correct the equipment issue."

Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott was famous for wearing the  'Crop Top' look.

"I don't like how long the jerseys are," Elliott said to the media on October. "I don't want people to be able to grab onto me."


Elliott had an incredible final stretch of the season by piling up 696 yards and eight touchdowns in the final three games of the season. The Sophomore ran for 220 yards and two touchdowns in the Big Ten Bowl against Wisconsin, 230 yards and two touchdowns in the first playoff game against Alabama and 246 yards, and four touchdowns in the Championship game against Oregon.
