Urban Meyer's return to the sideline went quite well, with Ohio State football knocking off Tulane 49-6. The team did lose running back Mike Weber during the game, though.

Weber is half of one of the best rushing tandems in the country, along with J.K. Dobbins.

In the season opener against Oregon State, he was an absolute monster, rolling along for 186 yards and three touchdowns. Dobbins has been the bigger focus since. Today, he went down with a foot injury after just six carries for 18 yards.

After the game Urban Meyer gave an update on the Mike Weber injury.

He doesn't sound too concerned about Weber in the long term.

Next week is a big one for the Buckeyes, and Meyer definitely wants all hands on deck.

Ohio State travels to No. 10 Penn State for a prime time match-up with the Nittany Lions. The last time the two faced off in Happy Valley, James Franklin picked up perhaps the signature win of his tenure at Penn State, 24-21, while Ohio State won the dramatic rematch last year 39-38.

With Dobbins and Weber rolling on the ground, and Dwayne Haskins making program history through the air, Ohio State looks lethal. Next week's match-up will be awesome.
