Urban Meyer Updates: Junior Linebacker Dante Booker Has A Strained PCL and MCL

Urban Meyer addressed the media Wednesday after practice to preview the Buckeyes' upcoming game at No. 8 Wisconsin.

The Ohio State football head coach held his weekly press conference following practice to look ahead to OSU's conference tilt against the Badgers. 

  • Meyer said the vibe around practice surrounding a top-10 matchup is workmanlike. He said the players would be more hyped up come Friday.
  • He also said has had good conversations about executing the up-tempo offense. 
  • Dante Booker is still questionable. He said the injury is worse than he originally thought. He said Booker has a strained PCL and MCL.  
  • Meyer said he has great confidence in Luke Fickell's insights on defensive recruits. He noted Robert Landers as an example. 
  • Corey Smith has a wrist injury and will not play this week.
  • "I think it's one of the great environments," he said of Camp Randall. 
  • Meyer said anytime there is a prime time game like this one, he hangs up posters around the facilities that read, "The most prepared team is going to win."
