Saturday afternoon the Ohio State Buckeyes will take the field for their first game in 2014 against the Navy Midshipmen, one of the better teams in the country to start the season off with. But what they also are is one of the more respected programs in the country, given their affiliation with our Armed Forces.
But if they deserve respect for anything this weekend, it was have to be the amazing uniforms they will be taking the field in Baltimore wearing, which you can view in the photos below.

Those are one of the sweeter uniforms that you will see this season, and here’s an explanation from Navy about the Under Armour digs.
BALTIMORE, Md. – The Navy football team will open the 2014 season against Ohio State on Saturday in a special Under Armour-designed uniform inspired by the iconic Navy Summer Whites military uniform.
From a helmet directly inspired by the covers that the Mids wear to a gold belt buckle, no detail was left out. Additionally, the Mids will be wearing solid white cleats that represent the all-white dress shoes of the Summer Whites military uniform, as well as all-white gloves.
For the first time, uniforms will slightly vary from player to player, with each athlete wearing their specific rank on the field, depicted in the shoulder board and pant leg design of each uniform.
