Ohio State to wear all-white 'Rivalry' uniform at Michigan

Ohio State and Nike like to break out new uniforms when the Buckeyes play rival Michigan. This year is no different. According to @11W, an Ohio State blog, the Buckeyes are expected to wear an all-white Nike “Rivalry” uniform in the latest installment of “The Game” on Nov. 30 in Ann Arbor. Ohio State has worn a home “Rivalry” uniform twice this season, vs. Wisconsin and Penn State.

Ohio State officials have yet to confirm the uniform, however the Buckeyes wore alternates vs. Michigan in 2009, 2010 and 2012. There’s also this retweet from assistant running back coach Matt Merritt and this tweet from receiver Philly Brown.

What do you think of this look? Surprisingly, it’s nothing too flashy, and it includes the same helmet, with the wide stripe down the middle, as the home “Rivalry” collection.

I think they’ve hit a home run with it.

With that codpiece, looks like something George W. Bush wore on that aircraft carrier with the “Mission Accomplished” banner. Hope it turns out better for the Buckeyes than it did for him.

It doesn’t matter what they wear in The Game as long as they win and win big GO BUCKS.

Since it’s Nike and you know how Nike operates (w/in college athletics), I could see Ohio State (Nike) designating the Maryland (Under Armour) game a special uniform game on an annual basis starting next season.

Disgusting. Gross. Epic Fail. ……. and that’s just Urban Meyer. Probation is coming soon, I hear the NCAA calling.

    It’s truly amazing how the Mich.fans (GoBlue) can’t take their medicine and just live up to the fact that their football team is not very good and under Coach Hoke are an embarrassment to GoBlue and the rest on Mich. nation. But know what does this guy do he wants to throw rock at Coach Meyer and The Ohio State with this probation talk and he can’t hear because Ohio State has nothing to worry about when it comes to the NCAA. If I were you GoBlue I’d be trying to figure how you all can beat Iowa this Saturday.GO BUCKS
