In 1967, Ohio State University football coach Woody Hayes started an iconic OSU football tradition, redesigning the team’s uniform and helmet using the most innovative materials available at the time. He and his strength coach Ernie Biggs changed the jerseys and began a tradition of adding Buckeye leaf decals to the players’ helmets to reward big plays on the field. The Buckeyes won the National Championship wearing the new uniforms the following year.

In honor of the undefeated team’s big game this weekend, Nike Football is carrying OSU’s history of innovation another step forward with an updated uniform design and new fabrication. The modern, integrated uniform system builds on the school’s rich heritage, highlighting an updated version of the classic Buckeye Stripe along with the color silver. Both design elements are infused throughout the uniform from the helmet to cleat, combining an innovative look with a nod to the team’s long-standing legacy. The iconic Buckeye leaf decals have also been updated in chrome and added to the back of the baselayer.

From head to toe, this new uniform is designed for speed with the inclusion of Nike Chain Maille Mesh into the jersey — a lightweight, ultra-breathable material that emphasizes improved thermoregulation. This new fabrication is incorporated into the back and under the arms of the jersey for exceptional ventilation without sacrificing durability.

The Nike Pro Combat Hyperwarm baselayer also keeps the body regulated for cold weather with breathability, water resistance and a streamlined fit. The Hyperwarm baselayer top features a new speed-focused design to coordinate with the uniform.

The full, integrated uniform system also features:

* Strategically placed seams, pads and cooling zones that help minimize distraction and optimize protective coverage. Padding without the bulk, offers optimal low-profile impact protection, specifically throughout the crucial “hit zone” between the knees and shoulders.

* Lightweight Nike Pro Combat Deflex padding integrated in the hip area of the pant for crucial impact protection that stays in place.

* A Flywire collar in the jersey, eliminating two layers of fabric for improved breathability and providing a more stable anchor to keep the jersey in place for enhanced lockdown functionality.
