Nike Unveils Uniforms for College Football Playoff

Fans 32, Michigan State,14, KC

It’s generally a well kept secret as to what flashy uniforms the Ducks will wear on game day. But this time we will not have to wait, as Nike unveiled the uniforms for all four football teams in the College Football Playoff.

The Ducks are bringing the “O” back. For the first time since the 2011 season, the “O” will be on the sides of the helmet as opposed to the wings.  Here’s a little preview of what the Ducks will be wearing when they take on Florida State in the Rose Bowl.

Ohio State, Alabama, Florida State’s uniforms remained pretty traditional.The only real noticeable change is that Ohio State will have black numbers on their shoulder pads when they’ve always had white in the past.

Florida State:

Alabama:

Ohio State:

Naturally, Phil Knight’s alma mater will have fresh and clean uniforms.

    I’ve always liked the big O on the side of the helmet… I like the wings, too, but not quite as well. And I liked the traditional interlocked UO a lot. So, I guess I’m kind of wishy-washy on an opinion. But I do like to see us change up the logo we use from time to time, as we do our uniforms. So I like using the O for this one. I wouldn’t mind a newer, more stylized (but not so out there that it becomes goofy looking) interlocked UO. Something truly cool and unique in design. That would tie our traditional logo with our new, high speed, space age image. Maybe for the National Championship (assuming we make it there… I’m not taking anything for granted)?

    I like the choice, but for the helmet. The winged helmet differentiates Oregon from other schools. Especially these other three “tradition-laden”/ stodgy uniform combos.

    I also question whether these will be the uniforms that will actually be worn, since there is no way that Bama and tOSU will come out with red jerseys and white pants.
