COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) - Apparently there will be more than one alternate uniform for Ohio State football this season.

A video was released on all the football team's social media accounts hinting at a possible all-white uniform for its regular season finale at Michigan.

The look, which was confirmed on Monday, features a metallic silver pattern (see photos here) with gray and red versions of LeBron James' Soldier XI cleats.

From Nike:

It's the first time this season that the team will wear all-white jerseys and pants (incorporating the Nike Vapor Untouchable Speed uniform). Gray accents and a metallic silver pattern throughout the uniform honor the Buckeyes' tradition of toughness and remind their rivals of their hard earned (and re-earned) nickname, the Silver Bullets, which describes the squad's historically staunch defense.

Ohio State previously wore an all-grey uniform in their comeback win over Penn State on October 28. In 2015, the Buckeyes had an all black look when they beat the same Nittany Lions.

The team wore vertical scarlet and gray stripes in a victory over Nebraska in 2016 (see more photos here:
