Ohio State's Throwback Uniforms vs. Nebraska: What You Need To Know

The Buckeyes are wearing some throwback uniforms on Saturday against Nebraska.

Ohio State is honoring its 1916 team with its "Music & Cannon Fire" uniforms against Nebraska. The 1916 Ohio State team went undefeated and is regarded as one of the greatest teams in Ohio State history.

You can read the full history of the 1916 team in this very well done Music & Cannon Fire storybook put together by the Buckeyes.

Here is some information about the 1916 team and the uniforms the Buckeyes are rocking on Saturday, via Ohio State:

The 1916 Ohio State Buckeyes are recognized as one of the greatest teams ever to take the field for the Scarlet & Gray. More importantly, they ignited the everlasting passion of Buckeye football and ultimately put Ohio State on the map.

Ohio State's 1916 alternate uniform showcases aesthetics seen on the original 1916 design, such as vertical striping on the front panel and shoulder pads. Additionally, new elements, derived from James Thurber's famous Chic Harley "Music and Cannon Fire" quote, are illustrated through a custom interior jersey patch (also featured on custom insoles for cleats) and the textured, matte black "Cannonball Helmet."

Ohio State (7-1) enters the contest against Nebraska as the No. 6 team in the College Football Playoff rankings while the Cornhuskers (7-1) come in at No. 10.

Ohio State is coming off of a 24-20 win last weekend over Northwestern following its first loss of the season at Penn State the week prior.

Nebraska suffered its lone loss of the season a week ago as Wisconsin beat the Cornhuskers 23-17. The Cornhuskers will obviously be looking to put that loss behind them in a major Big Ten matchup at Ohio Stadium.

The Buckeyes and Cornhuskers will kick off in Columbus at 8:00 p.m. EST and the game can be seen on ABC.
