Ohio State "Special" Uniforms for Rivalry Game
By: Scott Piker
BEAVERTON, Oregon - For the second year in a row, the Ohio State Buckeyes will wear a special jersey against rival Michigan. Last year, the Buckeyes wore their 1954 uniforms in their 21-10 victory over the Wolverines in Ann Arbor.
This year, Ohio State will wear a Pro Combat system uniform created by Nike. The Buckeyes are one of 10 major college football programs selected to wear this special uniform during the 2010 college football season. Other schools participating are Alabama, Boise State, Florida, Miami, Oregon State, Pittsburgh, Texas Christian, Virginia Tech and West Virginia.
The uniforms these schools will wear are engineered to provide superior protection and durability, while using advanced fabrics and tooling to reduce weight.
The Ohio State version will be introduced on Sept. 1, one day before the Buckeyes season opener against Marshall.
The 107th edition of Ohio State and Michigan will be played on Nov. 27 in Columbus.
