As it did vs. Penn State and Wisconsin this season, Ohio State will wear its home Nike “Rivalry” uniform in the Orange Bowl. The Buckeyes, who also wore an away “Rivalry” uniform at Michigan, will play Clemson on Jan. 3. Both team will have the official Orange Bowl patch on their jersey, too.

At some point this ceases to be an alternative uniform and just becomes their uniform.
