Urban Meyer Praises Jim Tressel, Who Will Be Honored At Ohio State Game Saturday

Jim Tressel will return to Ohio Stadium Saturday afternoon. The former Ohio State coach is part of this year's Ohio State's Athletics Hall of Fame class. He will be honored on the field during the first quarter of the Buckeyes' game against Northern Illinois. 

This will be the third time Tressel has been honored by OSU. He was honored at the 2012 Michigan game as part of the 2002 national championship team's 10-year anniversary. He was also honored before the national championship game in January for his induction into the College Hall of Fame. 

This evening, Urban Meyer was asked about Tressel.
