Ohio State squad heads to Norman, Okla., on Saturday night to take on the Sooners in one of four meetings of ranked opponents this weekend.
Ohio State has dominated Bowling Green and Tulsa in the first two weeks, cruising to a 2-0 record, but now we'll find out how real the Buckeyes are against a very motivated Oklahoma team. The Sooners need this game if they're to get back in the College Football Playoff conversation after losing their opener to Houston.
That Houston team is led by coach Tom Herman, who happens to be Urban Meyer's former offensive coordinator at Ohio State. The Cougars were incredibly effective against the Sooners, particularly on defense where they were constantly pressuring Baker Mayfield. Meyer told reporters on Monday that he's called Herman to get thoughts on what the Cougars were doing with personnel on the defensive side of the ball so he can work on scheming for Oklahoma.

"We did talk to Tom. We got their thoughts on personnel. Because you see what you see on videotape," Meyer said on Monday. "It was more about personnel because they have a couple of new players in the back end of their defense. Schematically, not as much because we get the same videotape that they have. It was more about personnel." (CBS Sports)
