Ohio State will wear its black alternate uniforms for the Oct. 5 homecoming game against Michigan State, The-Ozone's Tony Gerdeman reported Saturday evening.
The last time Ohio State wore black uniforms was against Nebraska last season. The alternate black uniforms are the threads often worn by recruits during photoshoots on visits – like the ones worn by Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Gee Scott Jr. in Smith-Njigba's tweet from June.
This game will mark the third time Ohio State has worn black uniforms in a game – against Penn State in 2015 and Nebraska last season. The Buckeyes won both games.
Despite wearing the black uniforms in 2018, the Buckeyes didn't wear any other alternate uniforms last season.
The "Scarlet Out" game is scheduled for the second game of the season against Cincinnati on Sept. 7, according to The-Ozone's report.
The kickoff for the Michigan State game is set for 7:30 p.m., and it will air on either ABC or ESPN.
