Urban Meyer is a fan of what he saw from Ohio State on Saturday.

The Buckeyes, expected to contend for a national championship this season, opened the year with a blowout win over Nebraska at home.

Ohio State, led by quarterback Justin Fields, pulled away from Nebraska in the second half for a 52-17 win at a mostly-empty Ohio Stadium. The Buckeyes are now 1-0 on the season heading into next weekend's game against Penn State.

Meyer took to Twitter shortly following the victory.

Fields and the Buckeyes' offense was mostly unstoppable for much of the game. This didn't come as a big surprise to Meyer, though.

The former Ohio State coach expects all 11 starters to be drafted.

“Today is all about the players, it’s not about commissioners, it’s not about AD’s, it’s certainly not about coaches,” Meyer said pregame. “This Is about the warriors on the field. Nebraska and Ohio State players and players families, that’s the reason they’re playing. I’m also excited to watch an historic and arguably one of the most talented Ohio State offenses of all time. Every player on the starting 11 will be drafted in the NFL. Their draft grades, I’ve watched them, I’ve talked to people, that’s 11 for 11 and even a lot of the backups. The question however will be the defense for Ohio State.”

Ohio State will need another big performance from the offense next Saturday, as the Buckeyes will play Penn State at Beaver Stadium.
