Ohio State Will Wear All White Rivalry Uniforms for Michigan Game

These are the uniforms Ohio State will wear against Michigan.

Ohio State will wear all white rivalry uniforms in the Michigan game, a source close to the team confirmed to Eleven Warriors.

The uniforms will feature the standard rivalry helmet the team has now worn in a few games, most recently against Penn State and Wisconsin this season, while featuring a white road jersey and matching white pants.

The "stormtrooper" look, as it has been referred to when other teams went with all-whites, most notably Texas A&M in 2012, and Oregon earlier this year, is a first for Ohio State.

This will be fourth time the Buckeyes will wear rivalry or alternate uniforms against the Wolverines, having first worn an alt set in 2009, then again in 2010 and 2012.

While a traditionalist set amongst the fanbase despises any changes to Ohio State's iconic uniform, the players, almost to a man, love wearing alternate uniforms.
