Although Urban Meyer will return from his suspension after this weekend, interim coach Ryan Day and Ohio State have a difficult challenge ahead of them tomorrow.

Through the first two games of the season, the Buckeyes have dominated their opposition. Now, they'll face one of the better teams in the nation in TCU. Following a gutsy win over SMU in sloppy weather conditions, the Horned Frogs will look to make a huge statement.

Despite featuring an extremely balanced roster, ESPN's Football Power Index isn't very high on TCU's odds to pull off the upset.

In fact, the FPI currently gives Ohio State a 86.7 percent chance to walk out with an undefeated record. 

ESPN's prediction for Ohio State vs. TCU.

Ohio State and TCU will kick off at 8:00 p.m. ET on Saturday from AT&T Stadium in Dallas - home of the Cowboys.

ABC will broadcast the highly-anticipated matchup, as both teams feature game-breaking performers at the quarterback position.

Stay tuned.
