Nike outfitted Ohio State with Pro Combat uniforms for its games against Michigan in 2009 and 2010. So when an Ohio State journalism student tweeted pictures of what he said was a Nike Pro Combat uniform for this year’s game, it got our attention. Ohio State’s response? It told me it has not announced anything with regard to any uniform change for a game in 2012.

For what it’s worth, it doesn’t seem like this is a legit uniform. There’s these tweets:
@BTNBrentYarina @jimmweber Those won't be the Bucks' Pro Combat unis for this year. That pic has been around for years. elevenwarriors.com/2010/08/return…—

Ohio State also wore Nike Pro Combat uniforms in last season’s win over Wisconsin.
