On Saturday afternoon, the Ohio State Buckeyes will take the field for arguably their toughest test of the season.
No. 12 Oregon comes to town, setting up a massive non-conference showdown that will have the nation’s attention. The Ducks didn’t get off to a great start last weekend, but ended up with a 31-24 win over Fresno State.
Oregon will need to get off to a much quicker start if the team wants any chance of competing with the Buckeyes this afternoon. Before the game kicks off, though, Ohio State fans received a message from a beloved member of Buckeye Nation.
Former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer and his family are still Buckeyes royalty. They also still love watching the Buckeyes play – and win – each and every weekend.
Before today’s game against Oregon, Meyer’s daughter, Nicki, had a message for Ohio State fans.
“LFG!!! I cannot wait to feel the energy in the Shoe today!!!!! #GoBucks,” she said on Twitter.

Despite Oregon being the No. 12 team in the nation, Ohio State enters the game as a heavy favorite. The Buckeyes are favored by 14.5 points – which shows the faith some sports books have in Ohio State today.
It also helps that Ohio State will be playing in front of a packed house, full of Buckeyes fans cheering them on.
It sounds like Nicki will be one of those in attendance today.
