Football The Rivalry

Watch: Happy Gold Pants Day

Ohio State Football Buckeyes Gold Pants


The Gold Pants tradition at Ohio State is arguably the most meaningful of any college football tradition.

It is the measuring stick for every single Buckeye who has suited up in the Scarlet and Gray since the tradition began way back in 1934.

It started when Buckeye head coach Francis Schmidt said of the mighty Wolverines, “They put their pants on one leg at a time just like everybody else.”

Since 1934, every time an Ohio State football team beats Michigan, the players earn a gold pants charm.

It may not sound like much, but it makes the winters and practices and the summers all worth it.

On Thursday, the Ohio State football Twitter account released a video explaining all of this a little more poetically.

Check it out.
