The Northern Illinois Huskies are following college football’s bowl game trend and will be rocking some new threads when they make their BCS bowl game debut against the Florida State Seminoles in the Orange Bowl. Northern Illinois will be looking to make a big splash for the national audience and — not only do they want to play good — they want to look good in their fresh new uniform.
Here is an image of the new unis that the Huskies will be wearing against Florida State:
The obvious change is the metallic silver numbers and the underlayer which features a huskie on the right arm. These uniforms are manufactured by Adidas and are part of their new tech fit series.
“Adidas will be unveiling new tech fit uniforms for the bowl season on some of your favorite collegiate teams — Texas A&M, Michigan, Mississippi State, Northern Illinois, Central Michigan,” said adidas collegiate representative Mark DeFeyter.
It’s a big step for the NIU football program. Not only are they playing like a top tier program, they are outfitted with the best of the best.
