Urban Meyer is back at Ohio State today for the Buckeyes' big showdown with Wisconsin. But he showed up for the FOX Sports broadcast with an interesting piece of jewelry on his hand - and it wasn't one of his national championship rings.

Jeremy Birmingham of Lettermen Row noted that the ring that Meyer has been wearing has a Cincinnati Bearcats logo on it.

Apparently, Meyer is wearing the ring his son Nate received as a member of the Bearcats' baseball season.

Nate Meyer helped the Bearcats win their first-ever AAC Baseball Tournament title en route to their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1974.

The Bearcats would go on to make the tournament Regional Round and finished 33rd in the standings.

It's surprising to see Meyer rocking his son's ring as opposed to the championship ring he won with the Buckeyes. But it's also very cool.

Meyer retired at the end of the 2018 season following a 13-1 record. That year they won the Big Ten title and secured a Rose Bowl victory.

But since he retired, his successor Ryan Day has not missed a beat. The Buckeyes are currently 7-0 and ranked No. 3 in the nation.

You can bet that Day and the Buckeyes will want to put on a good performance with Meyer at The Shoe.
