Ohio State loves freedom, to don camo uniforms for Carrier Classic against Marquette

Marquette and America's enemies won't know what hit them. Mostly Marquette.

The Ohio State University

Pro combat has come to college basketball in the most pro combat way yet. To honor the troops, Ohio State will be wearing the above uniforms in this Friday night's clash with Marquette aboard the USS Yorktown. The aircraft carrier is docked in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, just outside Charleston. The game will benefit the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society and The Wounded Warrior Project while also contributing to The Congressional Medal of Honor Society.

The Ohio State women's basketball team will also be participating taking on the always tough Notre Dame Lady Irish just before. The Buckeyes women's hoops' teams head coach, Jim Foster, happens to be an Army veteran. Last year's game (which featured Michigan State and North Carolina) raised nearly half a million dollars.

In case you had any doubts about just how much America Ohio State can handle, the answer is infinite. Let's roll, you guys. U-S-A U-S-A U-S-A.
