The 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship is all set to begin January 12, 2015 and already there is a debate on the teams uniforms.
Presented by AT&T the ‘College Football Playoff’, which is the 2014 college football season game set to kick off at 8:30 p.m. (ET). This is the first ever to replace the BCS National Championship Game, basically the finale of the 2014–15 bowl season.
Two things causing a debate this week is the teams uniform and name change. Yahoo Sports reports the city will be known as ”Oregon, Ohio: Buckeyes on the Bay, City of Duck Hunters,” over the next week as announced by the mayor of the Toledo suburb.
The next debate making its rounds on Twitter (Just search Twitter for ‘buckeyes uniform’ and ‘ducks uniform’) – The uniforms will be supplied by Nike according to the Oregon and Ohio State, The Ducks (13-1) will be wearing white jerseys and gray pants with white helmets with silver wings. The Buckeyes (13-1) wear a usual scarlet and gray combination.
Ohio State’s uniform is supposed to mimic the look from 1968, which is the year they beat Oregon to win the national championship. They beat a West Coast school, USC, in the Rose Bowl under the guidance of coach Woody Hayes. However, the Ducks undershirt has been placed at a 27-degree angle, which basically represents the 27 bowls games in Ducks football history.
Ohio State Buckeyes vs Oregon Ducks 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship kicks off at 5:30 p.m. from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
One Twitter user said the Buckeyes uniforms are great for the 12th, but can you really compare them with the Ducks in the uniform game?
Another tweet said the Ducks uniform is not acceptable, in a way it looks like the Buckeyes are playing the Raiders. Another said people should stop hating on the uniforms, and went on to say the Ducks will win 27-24.
