COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State and LSU will both wear their preferred home uniforms when they square off on Jan. 7 in the BCS national championship game.
As the higher-ranked team in the game at the Louisiana Superdome, No. 1 Ohio State (11-1) got first choice in selecting its jersey color. The Buckeyes opted for their usual home color of scarlet. They will wear gray pants, the school confirmed in an e-mail on Wednesday.
With Ohio State picking the dark jersey color, the Tigers (11-2) were permitted to go with their traditional white home jerseys in the game.
The Buckeyes wore white jerseys a year ago when they were beaten 41-14 by Florida in the BCS championship game in Glendale, Ariz.
LSU has worn white jerseys in seven consecutive bowl games, including all three of its Sugar Bowl appearances this decade. The last time LSU wore a color other than white in a bowl game came in 2000 when the purple-clad Tigers posted a 28-14 win over Georgia Tech in the Peach Bowl.
