Ohio State Wearing Black Alternate Unis for Night Game Vs MSU

Ohio State will be wearing their all-black alternate uniforms once again this season.

A source within the university has indicated to The-Ozone that the Buckeyes will be sporting the black unis for the October 5 night game against Michigan State.

This will also be homecoming for Ohio State. Kickoff is set for 7:30 pm on either ABC or ESPN.

The black alternate uniforms are a favorite among recruits and players. The Buckeyes last wore black uniforms in last season’s 36-31 win over Nebraska.

There is also a “Scarlet Out” scheduled for the Cincinnati game on September 7. This will also be the Hall of Fame Day for OSU.

The August 31 game against Florida Atlantic will be the Alumni Band Day. The November 9 game against Maryland will be Military Appreciation Day.

Obviously, Senior Day will be November 23 for the Penn State game.

  1. I’m so glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t like these. They have absolutely no OSU tradition in them and honestly they’re quite ugly. Stick to the traditional uniforms.

  2. I do not like the black uniforms either. These are not
    OSU colors. This is the game I have my
    Alumni tickets.

  3. The alternate uniforms are terrible. As a former OSU student-assistant, I remember our recruiting coordinator, Steve Pederson, saying that Ohio State has the most traditional and iconic uniforms in college football with the scarlet and gray. We will never stray away from that combination. Well..all these years later, we sold out to Nike who really doesn’t care about Ohio State tradition. Don’t give me the reason that recruits like them! I polled my students the last couple of years when Ohio State wore them, and 90% said that the black alternates were just flat-out ugly, and didn’t look like Ohio State. The students think the silver helmets with scarlet jerseys and gray pants are really cool. A lot of my students play sports, including football. Alabama, Penn State, USC, Texas, and others don’t really need this gimmick of alternate uniforms.

  4. I’m glad we have agreement, gentlemen. It’s said when the word “gimmick”, which is correct by WillyB, isn’t truly strong enough. The word “sellout” is probably even more accurate. Enough with the nonsense, honor the colors. Have some dignity- jeesh.

  5. Concur. Stick with the normal uniforms and quit trying to sell more jerseys. This gimmick was old years ago.

  6. I REALLY wish they’d stop wearing the alternate uniforms for all the big games..give me scarlet and gray every home game.
