Photos: Ohio State's 1968 inspired alternate uniforms for 2014 Sugar Bowl

You've got to see what Ohio State will be wearing against Alabama.

All four College Football playoff teams are the best (or tied for best) at recruiting in the respective conferences they're champions of. In perhaps no surprise, all four institutions also happen to be Nike schools.

To honor the programs, Nike put together four custom jersey sets (both a home and and an away iteration) for the schools to wear as they advance towards a potential national championship.

The schools will sport Nike Mach Speed uniforms with unique design elements featuring fractal diamond-colored Swooshes on the front of the uniform. The teams will also sport Nike Pro Combat Hypercool baselayer designs -- OSU's paying homage to the great Woody Hayes' final 'chalkboard sessions' -- as well as new Nike Vapor Knit gloves and brand new Nike Vapor Untouchable cleats. The teams will also sport "diamond-quest" embellished apparell and footwear.

Ohio State's black Nike Vapor Knit Gloves feature a scarlet underlay when stretched, and the diamond-color Nike Vapor Untouchable cleats are highlighted with scarlet accents.
