Ahead of their game against the No. 1 Minnesota Golden Gophers yesterday, No. 4 Ohio State Women's Hockey team unveiled new all-black uniforms for the anticipated clash between two of the country's best programs.

There was only one problem.

The Buckeyes played the Gophers yesterday with no infractions despite wearing the same sweaters. They weren't so lucky today.

In the minds of the referees on the ice, the red outline simply does not do the trick to make these numbers readable. 

Minnesota opened the match with a power play but failed to take advantage. You can follow the game on Twitter here
