Ohio State football: Alternate uniforms unveiled, Buckeyes avoid road night game
Ohio State football is the No. 1 topic in Wake Up Sloopy every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across Buckeyes sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Ohio State football, recruiting, basketball and more.
Ohio State alternate uniforms unveiled
Ohio State fans got a closer look at what the Buckeyes will wear against Penn State when the school unveiled the gray alternate uniform.
The jersey, pants and helmet are all gray, and the helmet has scarlet Buckeye leaves.
Must-watch video accompanies uniforms
If you’re down on the uniforms, it might help to watch the video Ohio State released the same day. Made by assistant director of creative media Andre Robinson, it’s received pretty universal acclaim and is worth checking out.

Iowa won’t be night game
Ohio State will be spared the challenge of a fourth road night game. While it once seemed probable that Iowa would host the Buckeyes at night, that game will instead kick off at either noon or 3:30 p.m. ET.
A decision will be announced six days before the Nov. 4 kickoff date.
