Ronda Rousey is the biggest female athlete in the world. Cardale Jones is just a college quarterback who has a crush on her. (Well, he won a national championship last January, too.)

But Rousey isn’t afraid to voice her support for Jones to be the defending champions’ starting quarterback.

Rousey is 28. Jones is 22. But Rousey’s sly grin definitely was a little flirty.

It appears Ohio State coach Urban Meyer listened to Rousey: Jones was the Buckeyes’ starting quarterback in Monday night’s opener at Virginia Tech, beating out J.T. Barrett after a rather one-sided competition.
