Urban Meyer knows that Penn State will be a huge test


Saturday night's game against No. 9 Penn State will be a test like not even Texas Christian was.

Ohio State has been seriously tested in only one of its first four games this season. Both teams are 4-0, as expected, and are both considered among the best teams in all of college football.

Last season, Penn State controlled the majority of the game in Columbus, but collapsed in the fourth quarter and allowed JT Barrett and the Buckeyes to storm back for the win.

"We obviously are appreciative of Coach Day's great work, and hope he continues to be one of our offensive coordinators for a long time, but we are more than confident Coach Meyer will be our head coach for quite some time", Smith said.

The full release from the Big Ten is below. "He'll play this week", Meyer said.

The last two Buckeye games at Beaver Stadium have been particularly memorable.

Ohio State is second nationally in scoring (54.4) behind quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr., who was named Big Ten co-offensive player of the week for his five-touchdown performance against Tulane. The No. 2 Buckeyes were favored, but lost in an upset, due in part to a Marcus Allen blocked field goal that led to a touchdown return for Grant Haley.

Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa will not be reevaluated until November after undergoing "major surgery", his dad, John Bosa, told The Athletic on Monday.

For at least three quarters of Penn State's 63-24 win over IL, the Illini ran all over the Nittany Lions before finishing the game with 245 rushing yards. He injured his foot against Tulane and did not return.
