Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer was hit in the face by a referee during his team's contest against Wisconsin on Saturday night.

Ohio State is struggling against Wisconsin on Saturday night, and it isn't just the team's players getting a little beat up. Head coach Urban Meyer, near the end of the first quarter, took a shot to the face from a referee after a play. Meyer attempted to get out of the way, but the ref simply came in too hot.

To top it off, Ohio State was hit with a sideline interference penalty that cost the team 15 yards. We're not sure if the two incidents are related or not.

Ohio State trails Wisconsin 10-3 in the second quarter. The Buckeyes need to put away their frustration if they want to emerge victorious.
