Report: Ohio State to Wear Rivalry Uniforms Saturday
You last saw these uniforms the final week of September during Ohio State's 31-24 win over Wisconsin. One month later, they're coming back. But this time there's a catch. According to Rivals' Andrew Holleran, the Buckeyes will also wear pink gloves and socks, and coaches will wear polo shirts with pink Ohio State logos to promote Breast Cancer awareness.
Ohio State "should" be wearing its alternate rivalry uniform Saturday, a source tells me. Pink gloves, socks will be worn by players.— Andrew Holleran (@andrewjholleran) October 22, 2013
Ohio State has not confirmed the report.
The fourth-ranked Buckeyes take on Penn State under the lights in Ohio Stadium at 8 p.m. Saturday.
