Ohio Bobcats Unveil New White 'Brick' Uniforms For Battle of the Bricks Rivalry Game

New, comments

The Ohio Bobcats and Miami RedHawks have the longest-running rivalry in the MAC, with a name inspired by both schools' campuses red-brick look. Now Ohio has taken the brick inspiration to its uniforms.

When Ohio welcomes Miami into Peden Stadium for the 90th installment in the Battle of the Bricks Saturday, the 'Cats will be dressed in brand new uniforms inspired by the rivalry's name.

The Bobcats unveiled the uniforms the team will be wearing for Saturday's "Ghost Out" in a video Monday afternoon, and no one can fault them for a lack of creativity. The uniforms sport a white theme throughout. White helmets with the block "Ohio" on the sides, and parallel green stripes running down the middle are complemented by white pants with thin green strips running down the sides, and white gloves.

But the crown jewel of these uniforms is most definitely the jerseys. The white Russell Athletic jerseys' numbers have a green brick motif no doubt inspired by the red bricks that have given the rivalry its name.

If the RedHawks' show up wearing their new uniforms this game would certainly be one of the more vissually intriguing installments in this 105-year-old rivalry.
