When the Ohio State football program returns to action on Saturday, November 3 against the Nebraska Cornhuskers, the No. 11 Buckeyes will be returning their all-black uniforms to the field. Ohio State took to social media to show off the all-black look that they will sport as they look to bounce back from a stunning upset loss to the unranked Purdue Boilermakers on Saturday, October 20.
Ohio State’s uniforms feature a black jersey, black pants, and a black helmet. The Buckeye helmet decals and numbers bring a pop of red to the uniform, while the cleats will be the latest edition of collabs between the Buckeyes and LeBron James’ signature shoe.
The decision to wear all-black against Nebraska — which has a defense nicknamed the “Blackshirts” — was announced on Twitter with an impressive hype video.
Ohio State first wore black jerseys against Penn State in 2015.
Kickoff between the Buckeyes and Cornhuskers at Ohio State is set for 12:00 p.m. ET on FOX.

Ohio State currently sits in second-place in the Big Ten East, with a 4-1 conference record and 7-1 overall mark. Ohio State’s biggest win of the year comes on September 29 against the No. 17 Penn State Nittany Lions.
