Urban Meyer Names Starting Running Back For Oklahoma Game

Urban Meyer talked about his running backs Thursday morning.

Thursday morning, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer, on his radio show, noted that freshman J.K. Dobbins will start at running back against Oklahoma, but that Mike Weber will be part of the game plan as well.

Meyer earlier in the week said the two would be in some kind of rotation.

Dobbins, filling in for Weber against Indiana, rushed 29 times for 181 yards, leading the Buckeyes to an impressive victory. Weber was out dealing with a hamstring injury.

One thing's for sure - if Ohio State wants to beat Oklahoma, its running game will need to be on point.

Ohio State and Oklahoma kick off at 7:30 PM ET.
