The Ohio State football program has always been well-known for producing some of the best uniforms in college football. On Monday, the team revealed that it would be debuting its latest set of new threads next month.

Ohio State announced on Monday that it will wear all-scarlet “Color Rush” uniforms for its home game against Penn State on Oct. 30. The jerseys prominently feature the Buckeyes primary color and are reminiscent of the "Color Rush" jerseys that have appeared in the NFL in recent years.

Next month against the Nittany Lions, Ohio State will be clad in scarlet jerseys, pants, base layers, gloves and spikes, with a small striping pattern on the shoulders and legs of the uniform. The Buckeyes will keep their iconic silver helmets for the clash against Penn State.
