Ohio State set to ‘Scarlet the Shoe’ in 2022 home game against the Iowa Hawkeyes

·2 min read

A monumental clash in the Big Ten just received an additional injection of pomp. In Ohio State’s recent announcement of their October home game themes, the Buckeyes announced plans and invited fans to “Scarlet the Shoe” in their Oct. 22 clash against Iowa.

After that, Ohio State will travel to Michigan State, then return back to the ‘Shoe on October 22 to face Iowa for the first time since that ugly 2017 game in Iowa City. To give the home team and fans a boost, the game will be a scarlet out with fans being asked to wear all scarlet. Don’t be surprised if the Ohio State football team wears the all-red uniforms as well. – Phil Harrison, Buckeyes Wire.

The Horseshoe in Columbus, Ohio, is one of the most troublesome venues for opposing teams to travel to. Seating well over 100,000 fanatic Buckeyes supporters, the Hawkeyes will now expect to be greeted by a sea of red. Ohio State versus Iowa is one of the biggest games of the year and the scarlet out will just add yet another wrinkle.

To see just how special of a spectacle the scarlet out can be, this is what it looks like for the Shoe to be Scarlet-ed.

In addition for October, the Buckeyes will be celebrating 100 years of Ohio Stadium during their homecoming game against Rutgers on Oct. 1. This is not the only game the Ohio State brass is imploring fans to color coordinate for.

On their announcement for the September home game themes, all that was stated for the clash with Wisconsin was “Wear Black.” While the time for the game has not been revealed yet, Buckeyes Wire speculated this could tip off a night-time blackout game against the Badgers.
