Ohio State, No. 3 in the latest AP Poll, will face its most difficult test of the season this upcoming Saturday against No. 13 Wisconsin. The Badgers are coming off a disaster loss to Illinois, but they're still the biggest threat to OSU's playoff hopes so far.

Urban Meyer isn't Ohio State's head coach anymore, however he's still taking time to analyze the Buckeyes, now as a Fox Sports analyst.

Fox Sports' pregame show Big Noon Kickoff is heading to Columbus for Saturday's big game, meaning Meyer will be returning to his former school.

He posted an Instagram message on Monday directed to all Ohio State fans and students.

"Hey, get there at 11 o'clock, we'll hang with you for an hour and have a great time," Meyer said.

You can watch the full message below.

Meyer's clearly excited to be returning to the school's stadium and able to catch up with fans. The former Ohio State coach retired earlier this year after the Buckeyes' Rose Bowl win over Washington.

Ryan Day took over for Meyer. The team has had a smooth transition, making light work of its opponents so far this season. The Buckeyes are 7-0 entering Saturday's game.

Ohio State-Wisconsin kicks off at noon ET on FOX. Gus Johnson and Joel Klatt will be on the call.
