Urban Meyer is not in Texas for tonight's Ohio State-TCU game. The Buckeyes' head coach is back in Ohio, serving the final game of his three-game suspension to start the 2018 season.

There was some talk that Meyer might make the trip to Arlington, Texas, considering his suspension ends at midnight after tonight's game, but he won't be re-joining the program until they get back to Columbus.

"For those wondering, Urban Meyer's final game day under suspension doesn't begin until midnight Saturday, but he did not travel with Ohio State to TCU, a spokesman confirmed. Meyer rejoins the team with no restrictions Sunday," ESPN's Adam Rittenberg tweeted.

So, Urban Meyer is back watching the game in Columbus with his family - who's all very nervous, apparently. Meyer's wife, Shelley Meyer, responded to an Ohio State fan on Twitter during the game.

Ohio State has looked good tonight, but so has TCU. The Horned Frogs' offense, save for that turnover into the end zone, has had little difficulty moving the ball on the Buckeyes' defense.

Urban Meyer has yet to be missed by this Ohio State team, but many thought tonight could be the night that it happens. The Buckeyes could certainly use their head coach against a tough TCU team.

Ohio State is up, 10-7, early in the second quarter. The game is on ABC.
