All-gray alternates will dazzle with scarlet numerals and accents


COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State University football team will host the Michigan State Spartans Nov. 11 at 7:30 p.m. on NBC wearing an alternate, all-gray uniform with scarlet accents, including numbers, and a traditional striping pattern. This will be the first alternate uniform combination of all gray with scarlet accents.

Ohio State has worn various alternate versions of its uniform 33 times since 2009, including jersey/pant combinations of white/gray, scarlet/gray, white/white, black/black, gray/gray and scarlet/scarlet.

The newest alternate uniform will feature steel-gray jersey and pants, a slightly darker shade than the traditional uniform pants, and will feature Ohio State’s home stripe pattern on the sleeves and pants. The jerseys pop with scarlet numbers and white edging on the front, back and shoulders, in addition to scarlet Big Ten and Nike logos, and the primary Ohio State logo at the crest of the chest.

All-gray socks will complete the look. The team will wear its traditional helmet.

Ohio State is 26-7 wearing an alternate uniform with seven consecutive wins in them at Ohio Stadium. The Buckeyes are 15-2 all-time wearing alternates at Ohio Stadium.
