PHOTOS: Ohio unveils 'Battle of the Bricks' uniforms
Ohio will play their annual 'Battle of the Bricks' rivalry game against Miami (Ohio) wearing special brick-inspired uniforms.

How big? Big enough that the Bobcats will debut new uniforms inspired by the campuses' bricks that lent the rivalry its name. Via the Bobcats' football equipment Twitter feed:

Any uniform idea that takes its cues from an architectural feature of campus (short of "Hokie Stone" helmets, anyway) gets a thumbs up.
