Ohio State has been seriously tested in only one of its first four games this season.
Ohio State next faces No. 9 Penn State on Saturday. Unlike the trip to Texas earlier this month, the stadium will not be filled with Buckeye fans. Also, it was recently announced that ESPN's popular college football pregame show - College GameDay - will be live on the Penn State campus.
This is a blow to Ohio State, which is getting ready for, arguably, its biggest game of the season. "It's certainly one of the top-five hard stadiums to play in".
The game already carries a lot of hype due to the fact that the victor will take the upper hand in Big Ten East standings.
"Obviously, a huge game this week", Meyer said. Ohio State edged Penn State 31-24 in double-overtime in 2014 with J.T. Barrett leading the way despite an injured knee. 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.
Penn State lost star running back Saquon Barkley to the National Football League, but that hasn't slowed the Nittany Lions.
That brings us to Weber, who left during the second quarter of the Buckeyes' 49-6 rout of Tulane with a minor injury.
No. 4 Ohio State plays No. 14 Michigan and No. 21 Michigan State in November.
The Penn State defense has had problems stopping opponents from moving the ball this year, particularly on the ground.
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.
