Ohio State busting out new alternate uniforms for Saturday showdown with Wisconsin
Ohio State’s basketball team will be switching it up from its traditional scarlet-and-gray uniforms this weekend. A big-time showdown on the hardwood against Wisconsin calls for an alternate look.
The 15th-ranked Buckeyes will travel to Madison to take on the 10th-ranked Badgers in an important B1G matchup. And Ohio State will be sporting an all-black uniform look for Saturday’s game, set for 4 p.m. ET with coverage airing on CBS.
Here’s a look at the uniform Ohio State will be sporting Saturday afternoon:

Saturday’s game is critical for both Ohio State and Wisconsin. The Buckeyes are 5-4 in conference play and need a big win to keep their name in the race for the regular season B1G title. The Badgers are just 1.5 games out of the top spot, and a win Saturday would close that gap down to just one game.
Both teams are chasing Michigan, which is currently the top team in the conference with an 8-1 record in conference play.
