An Ohio State football star appears to be going with a new jersey number for this afternoon's game against Michigan at Ohio Stadium in Columbus, Ohio.

Buckeyes' star running back Mike Weber, who missed his team's game against Maryland last week, is believed to be good to go against the Wolverines.

Weber is dressed and participating in warmups this morning. He's doing so in a new jersey number, too.

Jeremy Birmingham of Lettermen Row tweeted out that Weber is sporting No. 5 on the field this afternoon.

"For some reason Mike Weber is wearing No. 5 today for the Buckeyes. At least in pregame," he tweeted.

Weber appeared to reveal on Twitter last night that he would be wearing No. 5. It looks like this is the jersey number Weber grew up wearing. Check it out:

Weber has been pumped up for this game against Michigan all week.

He responded to a Michigan player's "guarantee" earlier in the week:

And he posted this photo to begin the week:

Ohio State and Michigan are set to kick off at noon E.T.

The game will be on FOX.
