Ohio State Will Wear Road Uniforms as the Away Team in the Big Ten Championship Game

Road kits, mustache optional.

Despite being undefeated, Ohio State will wear road uniforms as the away team in the Big Ten Championship Game on Dec. 7 against Michigan State.

The Big Ten alternates home team status between the two divisions, Legends and Leaders, with Michigan State serving as the home team in the inaugural event in 2011 and Wisconsin rocking home kits last year against Nebraska.

Ohio State and Michigan State last played in East Lansing last season. This Braxton Miller to Devin Smith touchdown third quarter touchdown proved to be the game-winner in a 17-16 Buckeye victory.

Love the road jerseys...best in college football

By the end of the game, Sparty will be seeing red Scarlet.

Our road whites are pure class. Their green homes look generic as they come. Works for me.

Eh. Their home greens are the best home greens they've had in the past 20 years IMO. All the different looks for them haven't done anything for me, especially those ones they wore in 2010. Yuck.

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

Was 2010 the year they went bronze?

I'm presuming that we'll run the normal away kit, as opposed to the "Storm Trooper" version we'll be sporting against TSUN this week...

I wouldn't be so sure about that. It's all about recruiting and the Buckeyes will be on a big stage.

I really hate Michigan State's road uniforms, so I'm fine with this.

The uniforms will say road, but the stands will say home. 

No relation to OSUFORLIFE...

OSU's road uniforms are probably their best.

The road whites are the best.

And while the uni's make a statement, the most important one comes on the field . . .

Also digging Basil's no shave November 70's porn stache

I sure hope Sparty doesn't wear these.

Ironically, those look like Baylor's unis vs. Okie State.

Well, white with faded mustard stains.

Hopefully we will wear white against FSU in the following game too.

Basil has been sporting that porn stache all year.

I guess that's why UM called him a "man's man."

Hoody Wayes's picture

Maybe, we should only wear scarlet in the Shoe?

Kurt's picture

1. Yes.  
2. Put me in the column of liking the white road unis more than the home scarlet.

If I remember correctly, OSU won a national championship in 2002 wearing their away unis.

Also lost 41-14 in them, started the SEC narrative, lost in excruciating fashion to Texas, and got pounded 34-3 by USC. 
But, beat Oregon and Arkansas in them. Take your pick, we have had good/bad moments in each jersey. 
As long as we avoid seeing the all white Walmart MSU jerseys I think we can all consider it a victory for our eyes. 

7 yards and a cloud of dust is a beautiful thing

Out last loss came in them.

Has Nike given Gene Smith their approval for us to wear our traditional road uni's.

And our white uniforms look 10000000 times better because we wear white socks, sleeves and tape instead of black.

There is just something magical about seeing the Buckeyes wearing the road whites late in the season.  It's like a feeling of brotherhood, a symbol that the team is on the road but they will stick together no matter what...idk:

Jurmah12's picture

The white just pops out with the gray in the helmet in pants. Subtle scarlet touches make this the best uniform in college football. Period!
The stormtrooper look will be cool this Saturday against TSUN, but the traditional white uni's are just undeniable.
I'm 20 by the way.

Doesn't matter what we wear, or what they wear.  Every game is home for Buckeye Nation.  Indy will be no exception.
And neither will Pasadena.

Just to elaborate on what Whoa Nellie said above, the color of the jersey is completely irrelevant.  Forget betting on the spread...I'll take a 75-25 differential on the fanbases in the stadium.  I'm sure you can guess who I think will travel better.
Kinda like the 2002 NC game actually.  Come to think of it, was there even an audible reaction, negatively, to that supposedly "BS" pass interference call?  I feel like it was 80-20 OSU fans at least.

In the movies, and conference championship games, the good guys wear white.  And the good guys always win in the end.
