The Buckeyes are getting icy.
Ohio State's football team plans to don alternate all-white uniforms for this weekend's road game with Illinois, a source confirmed to Eleven Warriors. They're said to be similar to the Braxton Miller-era all-white alternates that debuted early in the 2010s.
These will be the first non-traditional uniforms worn this season. Ohio State last rocked alternates when it went with the all-black uniforms last year versus Michigan State.
The Buckeyes wore all-white uniforms as part of their "Land of the Wolves" series in the late 2010s. Saturday's uniforms will look more like the white jersey-pants combination that was first used in the 2013 Michigan game. Per Andrew Lind, the Buckeyes will wear their standard helmets with the white uniforms.
Ohio State-Illinois kicks off at noon and will be television on FS1.
