Urban Meyer Was Stunned After Ohio State's Loss To Iowa

The Buckeyes' head coach apparently didn't have much to say.

Urban Meyer isn't often speechless following an Ohio State game.

The Buckeyes' head coach basically was on Saturday afternoon, though.

OSU, following its epic comeback win against Penn State in Columbus last weekend, went to Iowa and got shellacked by the Hawkeyes, 55-24. It's arguably the most-surprising result of the Urban Meyer era at Ohio State. The Buckeyes now have lost two regular season games for the first time ever under their head coach.

After the game, Meyer wasn't able to say much.

"I don't know" was apparently a popular answer to questions.

Ohio State will have to rebound quickly if it wants to salvage its season.

While the Buckeyes' College Football Playoff hopes are likely finished, OSU's Big Ten title chances remain in tact.

Ohio State is set to host Michigan State at Ohio Stadium on Saturday afternoon in what could be a de facto Big Ten East Division title game.
