Ohio State to Wear All White For 'The Game'
Nov. 19, 2013
COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Ohio State Buckeyes will unveil a fifth Nike "rivalry" uniform in less than two weeks when the team travels to Ann Arbor, Mich., for the 110th edition of "The Game": Ohio State vs. Michigan.
The uniform look features white jerseys with large scarlet numbers on front, and on the shoulder pads. Names across the back are in all black. The white pants include scarlet, black and white piping along the sides. Seven Buckeye leaves ring the back of the collar and a "Block O" is on the front of the collar at the front v-neck.
The team will sport the shiny chrome helmet with a wide scarlet, white and black stripe that it wore for this year's Wisconsin game.
Some additional information about the uniform:
Ohio State's white uniform look is completed by all-white Nike Alpha Pro Cleats and Nike Vapor Jet 2.0 Shield Gloves. Constructed with seamless Nike Hyperfuse on the back of the hand for wind and water-resistance, the Nike Vapor Jet 2.0 Shield Glove is equipped with a fleece lining on back of hand for extra warmth. The palm features Nike Magnigrip material to catch in any condition. With a 3/4 length Phylon wedge at the midsole, the Nike Alpha Pro Cleat promotes forefoot control through low profile cushioning. The bladed cleat base provides 360 degree traction for precise cuts on all surfaces.
Ohio State is 6-0 wearing alternate, rivalry style uniforms with wins over Michigan in 2009 at Michigan Stadium (21-10) and in 2010 at Ohio Stadium (37-7), a win over Wisconsin in 2011 at Ohio Stadium (33-29), an Ohio Stadium win over Michigan in 2012 (26-21) and Ohio Stadium wins this year over Wisconsin, 31-24, and Penn State, 63-14.
