Nebraska Cornhuskers Get Black Alternate Uniforms From adidas (Photo)


Another day, another alternate college football uniform to pass along. This time, the alternate uniform is a collaboration between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the fine folks of adidas. Nebraska sports one of the most traditional looks in the nation, so it could be interesting to see the fans reaction to this modern take on the uniform.

The uniform will be worn for the Cornhuskers game against the UCLA Bruins on September 14 and, quite frankly, they are brilliant. The Blackshirts will never have looked so good.

From the socks to the piping on the pants to the black jersey to the slight change in the helmet. It all just works. This is the perfect example of a team mixing up their uniform with a modern twist, while still holding true to the traditional values of the school.

Enough of the talk, though. Let’s get right to the uniforms.

Here is the first look at the front and back of Nebraska’s new alternate uniform, via adidas:

Perhaps the most interesting part of the alternate uniform that will be overlooked until we see them in person is the unique facemask. We has seen a few teams going towards the two-tone facemask, but it looks better than ever with Nebraska’s black and chrome red combination. 

Overall, this is one of the most successful alternate uniforms in recent memory.
