Penn State Football To Wear White Jerseys On Saturday After Reportedly Trying To Block Grey Ohio State Uniforms

Penn State football won’t be switching up its jersey traditions this weekend against Ohio State despite the Buckeyes going with an all-grey alternate jersey that could potentially cause similarity issues. The Nittany Lions will wear traditional road whites.

Rumors of the Nittany Lions potentially wearing the iconic home blue uniform on the road began to swirl once the Buckeyes announced intentions of releasing an all-grey uniform for the game. Penn State Associate AD for Strategic Communications Jeff Nelson confirmed the jersey news earlier on Monday afternoon to Onward State.

Here’s a look at Ohio State’s getup for this weekend:

Yes, saying “Penn State is wearing white jerseys on the road,” seems to be a fairly obvious statement, but here’s where it gets interesting. Toledo-area station WTOL-11 reporter Jordan Strack said the decision for Ohio State to wear grey came late last night after Penn State attempted to block the Buckeyes from donning the greys in fear of the two jerseys looking too similar.

Ohio State has never worn all-grey, and is making a habit of rolling out stylish alternate uniforms against the Nittany Lions when playing at home. It’s just another interesting twist in what should be the best game of the 2017 college football season.

Do you think the jerseys are too similar? Let us know in the comments!
