Urban talks about Minnesota defense and the quarterback plan for Saturday

COLUMBUS, Ohio

Urban Meyer addressed the media after practice Wednesday as the team prepares for their upcoming home game on Saturday against Minnesota.

He said J.T. Barrett has had a very busy week, but has been working with Braxton Miller and Joe Burrow at practice to prepare them as back-up quarterbacks to Cardale Jones in Saturday’s game.

Meyer also talked about Jones being human and a competitor, so he imagines it would only be natural for him to look at this game as a shot to earn the starting quarterback position back.

He said Minnesota has a very good defense, and with how passionately they played last week after losing their long-time head coach Jerry Kill, he believes the Golden Gophers will “stop the run at all costs” against the Buckeyes.
