Ohio State

The Buckeyes will be wearing an away version of their Nike Rivalry uniform against Michigan. The all-white uniform was originally stated to be a nod to the 1950 Snow Bowl, but Ohio State’s information director Jerry Emig recanted the statement, saying that the uniforms help the Buckeyes "stay cutting edge and take care of the players, who like wearing an alternate".

For the aforementioned matchup with Army, the Midshipmen will be wearing the home version of their 2012 Rivalry uniforms. Featuring one of the best helmets in college football, it’s sad this set won’t be their regular uniforms in 2014. as Navy is moving from Nike to Under Armour.
