Sunday morning, it was revealed that Ohio State will be wearing some alternate throwback uniforms this fall – paying homage to its 1916 squad. The jerseys, as you can see below, feature five gray stripes and large, white numbers.
Why the 1916 season, you ask? Well, that squad was the first to win the Western Conference – which eventually turned into the Big Ten. Back then, the Western Conference consisted of Ohio State, Northwestern, Minnesota, Chicago, Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Indiana and Purdue. The Buckeyes went 7-0 overall – even winning one game 128-0 against Oberlin.

Obviously, this looks to be a 100-year anniversary tribute. Do you like the new/old look?
