In 1916, the Ohio State University football team, lead by halfback Chic Harley, registered the school's first undefeated season on route to claiming the conference title. To commemorate the 100 year anniversary of that season, the school will add a new throwback look to its uniform collection, complete with scarlet and gray striped jerseys, gray pants and matte black helmets.

A special game woven label bearing the inscription “music and cannon fire” on the inside collar is pays homage to Harley’s running style, “a cross between music and cannon fire, and it brought your heart up under your ears."

The Ohio State’s Nike Vapor Untouchable uniform features an all-new chassis with minimal seams and fewer panels (five each in the jersey and pant) than traditional builds.

The Buckeyes will debut the throwback look on November 5, 2016.
