This past weekend, Ohio State decimated Tulane at home, improving their record to 4-0. While the Buckeyes have a huge test coming up this Saturday against Penn State, Urban Meyer is making sure his players are ready for the challenge.

Although Ohio State had success in every phase of the game last weekend, Meyer's offense really stood above the rest. More importantly, Dwayne Haskins continued his masterful season in Columbus. The talented quarterback threw for 304 yards and five touchdowns in just one half of action.

In fact, Haskins was so impressive that Meyer had to call his quarterback on the ride home.

Meyer stressed the importance of staying focused, but he also admit that Haskins has been fantastic through four games.

Clearly, Meyer understands that Ohio State's offense relies heavily on Haskins' ability to move the chains.

Despite Haskins' incredible start to the season, Saturday's matchup against Penn State will be the toughest game of his career.

If Haskins took Meyer's advice, then he could shine on the main stage once again.

Ohio State and Penn State are set to kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET. The game will be on ABC.
