Urban Meyer must have liked what he saw on Saturday night.

This past Saturday night, Ohio State fans were asked to wear black to "black out" the Horseshoe for the team's big game against Penn State. The Buckeyes wound up winning the game - barely - and head coach Urban Meyer apparently wants to make it a tradition.

Meyer noted Thursday that he wants Ohio State to make a blackout game an annual occurence for the program.

Via Tim May:

We imagine Meyer would probably have a different mindset if his team had lost the game. Ohio State fans - do you want this to become a tradition or did you like it as a one-off?
