Last season, Penn State Nittany Lions head coach Bill O’Brien made a change to the team’s uniforms by adding player names to the back of the jerseys. It was used to give recognition to the players who decided to stick with the program despite the heavy NCAA sanctions. Now, the Penn State football team will get another slight change to their uniforms for the upcoming season.

If you aren’t a Penn State fan or avid uniform watcher, you may not recognize the changes, but when you look closely you can see it is there.

At the center of the v-neck collar of the jersey, there is now the Nittany Lion logo. This will be present on both the home and away jerseys. The other change was to shift the Nike swoosh. The Nike logo was previous on the shoulder paneling, but on the new jerseys it will be centered to the main jersey panel.

Here are the updated uniforms:
