The Ohio State Buckeyes take on the Penn State Nittany Lions this weekend in what is essentially a Big Ten Championship Game play-in. Ahead of the game, former Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer had a message for the fans.

In a message directed at Block O - the student section - he called on the students to show up nice and early to the stadium for FOX Sports' Big Noon Kickoff Show.

"See you Saturday 10 AM sharp at the RPAC. (Big Noon Kickoff) needs your support," he tweeted.

Considering that ESPN is going to be hosting College GameDay at the same time, FOX is really bringing out the big guns to make sure they have the bigger crowd.

But there's no doubting Meyer's sincerity in wanting to see his former team succeed - especially in this game.

In his seven years at the helm, Meyer went 6-1 against Penn State. But that lone loss in 2016 ultimately cost them a trip to the Big Ten Championship Game.

But Ohio State boasts one of its most complete teams ever, dominating on both sides of the football. They are currently the No. 1 offense in college football (51.5 points per game scored) AND the No. 1 defense in the nation (9.8 points per game allowed).

They'll be put to the test on both of those fronts against a Penn State team that ranks 15th in scoring and 7th on defense.

Get ready for a fun one.
