Urban Meyer and the Ohio State Buckeyes are set to play in one of the most-intimidating environments in all of college football tonight, as they head to State College, Pa. to take on Penn State in its vaunted "White Out" atmosphere.

Ohio State and Penn State are set to kick off at 8 p.m. E.T. The game will be on ABC.

ESPN's College GameDay is live from Penn State this morning. Unsurprisingly, we're seeing quite a bit of Urban Meyer signs on the show this morning.

We'll likely be seeing plenty of them in the stands tonight, too. In fact, we might be seeing some controversial Urban Meyer T-Shirts in the crowd.

Urban Meyer's wife, Shelley Meyer, called out Penn State fans for these T-shirts in a since-deleted tweet.

"This is the lowest thing I have seen from a fan base," Shelley Meyer wrote. "Doesn't match up (with) what your coach said he wants for visitors. Thanks for the hospitality."

Shelley Meyer tweet about Penn State fan shirts.

Shelley Meyer deleted this tweet shortly after it went up. It's understandable that she would feel that way, but deleting it was probably the right move.

Regardless, Urban Meyer and his Ohio State team are not going to be welcomed too graciously at Penn State this evening. It should be one of the loudest environments in college football this season.

Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. E.T. The game will be on ABC.
