College Football Uniform Roundup, Week 9: Ohio State Gets Mixed Reviews

The college football season is in full swing, and the cream is starting to rise to the top of the crop. By this point of the season, we have a clearer idea of who is seriously contending for a College Football Playoff spot, and who is can be expected to come out flat every weekend.

The talent on the field isn’t distributed evenly from team to team. But regardless of how they actually perform, everyone has the chance to break out creative uniform combinations.

The equipment managers and designers are only getting better as the season goes on.

This weeks roundup might be the best of all.

They saved the best for last with this one. Ohio State is playing the marquee game of the weekend against the second overall ranked Penn State Nittany Lions. Rumor has it that PSU tried to block the Buckeyes from wearing these all grey uniforms with black letters because the colors were too similar.

Ohio State got the go-ahead, and topped it off with LBJ Soldier XI cleats.

The Buckeyes might have busted out the most dapper duds of the weekend, but it was close. Maryland, celebrating its 125th year of college football, is going off the board with their uniforms this weekend.

The Terps are going with their throwback colors, black and white, which the the team changed after the 1940’s.

The full lineup of uni’s was strong this week. There appears to be a trend of monochrome, with several of the teams featured on ESPN this week going with matching colors for their shirts and pants.

Texas A&M is a relative newcomer to the world of alternate uniforms, but they put out a really nice set this week. North Carolina had the Michael Jordan practice shorts edition this week against Miami, and the Ohio Bobcats broke out probably their best look of the season with the blackout uniforms.
