Some images of scarlet jerseys with grey shoulder stripes were making their ways around social media over the weekend.
The jerseys were what we'd seen unveiled a month or so back, paying homage to the 1968 Woody Hayes title team of yesteryear while rocking the same gray stripes we all desperately wish were still the primary ones. They also had a "2()15" patch on them with the College Football Playoff's first year logo displayed on on the upper right hand side of the front of the jersey.
If there was any doubt that the Buckeyes wouldn't be rocking scarlet, that can now be removed, as Oregon announced they'll be wearing all white versions of their 2015 College Football Playoff jerseys officially on Twitter late Monday morning:

The Buckeyes followed suit with a announcement that they'd be wearing scarlet shortly there after.
Ohio State last wore scarlet uniforms while competing for a national title in their 38-24 BCS Championship Game loss to LSU in 2008. In the 2007 edition of the game against Urban Meyer and Florida, the Buckeyes wore white. Ohio State was also sporting white (with gray and red shoulder stripes akin to what we saw in New Orleans against Alabama) against Miami in the 2003 Fiesta Bowl.
