Oregon and Ohio State will play for the inaugural College Football Playoff championship a week from tonight.

As unveiled Monday morning, Ohio State will be in scarlet jerseys with black shoulder numbers to honor the 1968 title team, while Oregon will be in white and silver, because Oregon.
A close up of the Buckeyes...
... and the Ducks.
