Watch: Ohio State OL Malcolm Pridgeon, DB Wayne Davis Lose Their Black Stripes

Ohio State's players losing their black stripes.


Two more Ohio State players lost their black stripes today.

Junior college transfer offensive lineman Malcolm Pridgeon and true freshman defensive back Wayne Davis had their stripes removed, which is a rite of passage in the Buckeye program.

Here's the video of the ceremony.

Davis has appeared in one game for the Buckeyes as a freshman. Pridgeon has missed the entire season with a knee injury but says he is now healthy and could potentially play in the Fiesta Bowl against Clemson.

Ohio State plays Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl on Dec. 31, with the winner facing either Alabama or Washington in the College Football Playoff title game on Jan. 9.
