Though the uniforms existence comes as no surprise, we finally get our first official look at the fauxback alternate uniforms Ohio State will be wearing this coming weekend against Nebraska.
Leaked by ESPN’s Darren Rovell, the Buckeyes will be donning this look which celebrates the 100th anniversary of the undefeated 1916 Ohio State Buckeyes team. That team did not play Michigan but some of its members would be part of the first ever OSU team to beat Michigan in 1919.
Here’s a look at the duds Urban Meyer’s Bucks will suit up in this weekend:
