As part of its Rivalry uniform program, Nike has designed a special uniform with cutting-edge fabrics and technologies (37 percent lighter!) to be be worn by the Buckeyes when they play Michigan, November 21, 2009. This new uniform, inspired by the 1954 National Championship team, are meant to honor Ohio State tradition and accomplishment. They were officially unveiled Monday at the Newport Music Hall for the Beat Michigan pep rally. The team will return to wearing their traditional uniforms after the game versus Michigan.
