On Saturday, The-Ozone reported that the Ohio State Buckeyes would be trading in their traditional scarlet and gray when they take on the Michigan State Spartans on Oct. 5. The Buckeyes will don an all-black uniform for the 2019 Homecoming Game, which will be a primetime affair kicking off at 7:30 p.m. ET on either ABC or ESPN.

The team showed off the ensemble during Friday’s tour of the recently renovated Woody Hayes Athletic Center along with two kits made up of scarlet jerseys and gray pants. The Buckeyes last wore the all-black combo last season when they hosted the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Nov. 3.

Other games of note this year include a “Scarlet Out” for the Sept. 7 return of Luke Fickell, who will bring his Cincinnati Bearcats to The ‘Shoe — hopefully the Buckeyes won’t try to go all-scarlet for this one.

The season will open with the Alumni Band Day on Aug. 31 versus Florida Atlantic, Military Appreciation Day will be Nov. 9 against Maryland, and 2019 Senior Day will take place on Nov. 23 when the Penn State Nittany Lions come to Columbus.


Are you a fan of the all-black Buckeye look?
