While you were busy celebrating the nation's birthday, Ohio State retailer The Buckeye Room released photos of a new "twill Nike limited" Ohio State home football jersey, featuring seven embroidered Buckeye Leafs on the back collar – one for each of the school's seven claimed national championships.
Since then, the retailer has released additional photos, showing the same collar treatment on the school's white road jersey and confirming the appearance of Nike's "Flywire" tech on the front of the collar. Flywire – referred to as the "Nikelace" by the venerable Paul Lukas of Uni Watch – utilizes Vectran fibers, which are thinner than a human hair and strong enough to
end the torn collar epidemic look cool. While Flywire won't necessarily be visible on the white road jerseys, it will more than pop on the scarlet home jerseys.
Although The Buckeye Room slapped the "limited" label on these new jerseys, Eleven Warriors has learned that they will represent the standard home and away jerseys for Ohio State this season. As has been the case in recent years, you can also expect to see at least one alt uniform this season, as well, though we've been unable to confirm whether it will be worn for the home game against Wisconsin or for the finale on the road in Ann Arbor.
