#1 NJURY REPORT: Meyer said linebacker Dante B von love520 13.07.2019 06:56

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State coach Urban Meyer admittedly worries about everything, and near the top of the list this week is how the Buckeyes are going to run the ball Saturday against Oklahomas huge and experienced defensive front.After breaking school records for offense in its first game, No. 3 Ohio State (2-0) started slow last week against Tulsa and didnt get the train back on the tracks until the second half. Meyer knows the Buckeyes cant afford a slow start against the No. 14 Sooners, especially when it comes to establishing the run against their heavy, run-stuffing defensive linemen Charles Walker (6-foot-2, 304 pounds), Jordan Wade (63, 311) and Matt Dimon (62, 270).You have to be really on your target to run the football on them, Meyer said. Theyre big, gigantic guys inside. Very similar to Alabama defensive line. And obviously skilled secondaries. So I just think theyre the whole package.Ohio State redshirt freshman tailback Mike Weber has shown signs of brilliance in the first two games of his career, piling up 136 yards on 19 carries against Bowling Green and 92 yards on 17 carries in the victory over Tulsa. H-backs Curtis Samuel -- perhaps the most valuable offensive player for Ohio State through two games -- and Dontre Wilson also will test the Oklahoma front, not to mention fleet, slippery quarterback J.T. Barrett.Im not worried by any means, center Pat Elflein said of the offensive line establishing the ground game. We had a lot of stuff thrown at us (defensively) last week, and I think it was good to get some experience with that stuff. So Im sure Oklahoma will see that, too, try to throw some of that stuff at us and catch us off balance a little bit. I think it was good we saw all that with how young we are.Of the Sooners defensive front, Elflein said: Theyre big, theyre good with their hands, they play hard. Big strong dudes in there.Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano said the real season starts Saturday.This is definitely a step up in athleticism were going against, Schiano said. Its no disrespect to the first two teams, this is big boy football now.Elflein said preparations already feel different.Youve always looked ahead to this game, he said. Youve seen it on the schedule, and now its here. We know what the task is, and we know were going down there at night, a big-time showdown, so its a different feeling for sure.INJURY REPORT: Meyer said linebacker Dante Booker, who injured a knee in the Bowling Green game, is probable for Oklahoma. He didnt play against Tulsa.DEFENSIVE BACKS ON THE RISE:Cornerback Marshon Lattimore was named the national Walter Camp Defensive Player of the Week for his performance against Tulsa. He intercepted two passes, including a 40-yard return for a touchdown with 33 seconds left in the first half to make it 20-3 and give the Buckeyes some breathing room going into halftime. Safety Malik Hooker leads the FBS with three interceptions. He also had a pick six last week.THE OHIO STATE CONNECTION:Meyer said hes already talked to Tom Herman, the former Ohio State offensive coordinator whos now the Houston coach, about how to attack Oklahoma. Hermans Cougars upset the Sooners in the opening week, 33-23. The loss dropped Oklahoma out of the top 10. Meyer said the discussions centered on Oklahomas defensive personnel.---Online: AP College Football website www.collegefootball.ap.org---Follow Mitch Stacy at http://twitter.com/mitchstacy .

Stephen Mandel wont give any details, saying councillors need to hear about and discuss the issues at the meeting Wednesday afternoon. Councillors dont know what exactly the arena update will be, but Don Iveson thinks it must be something of substance. Last week, Mandel asked for and got the support of the Capital Region Board to support Edmontons bid for a $25 million portion of the Regional Collaboration Program. The program is expected to offer $141 million over the next three years for projects that benefit regions as a whole. If the application is successful, and the city receives the full amount, Edmonton would still need to find $30 million to cover the remaining amount for the arena. City council voted unanimously last weeek to defer the debate on funding for the downtown arena to a later date, to give time to explore other funding options for the project.dddddddddddd The city has already agreed in principle to build a rink and share the costs with Edmonton Oilers owner Daryl Katz. The Katz Group wouldnt confirm if theyd have someone at Wednesdays meeting, but officials seemed encouraged by the mayors optimism. The arena has divided citizens and detractors say the deal is too lopsided in favour of Katz if public money is needed for the rink. Edmonton taxpayers will pay $219 million toward the 18,559-seat facility, which has a futuristic design of metal and glass. The Oilers share will be $143 million. Another $125 million will come from a ticket tax that wouldnt exceed seven per cent of the total cost of a ducat. (CHED
