Ohio State 1917 throwback alternate uniforms leaked


Ohio State (and their merchandising partner) have made quite the name for themselves in the alternate uniform game.

Breaking out alternate looks every single season since the late 2000s, Urban Meyer and co. set the athletic aesthetic scene on fire when they leaked a black concept Ohio State uniform the team wound up wearing during the 2015 season.
