Oregon to go all-black for Rose Bowl

Wings not included. Photo credit: Nike

The Oregon Ducks, surprise surprise, are going to wear a specially designed Pro Combat uniform from Nike when they take on the Wisconsin Badgers in the Rose Bowl January 2. Nike released the photos today and it looks as though Oregon will be suiting up in all-black for the game, with a trim around the numbers and for the player name on the back of the jersey.

Honestly, these are not all that much different from their regular Pro Combat uniforms this season, seen here. The helmet is clearly different, as Nike has played on the wing idea for the uniform. Now if Oregon actually took the field with wings, like this picture would imply, then we’ll talk. But overall, this is kind of bland for Oregon, and I have to give a thumbs down overall. It’s not original and it lacks character. But I’m sure those playing for Oregon will disagree, because Oregon uniforms are always cool, right?

Honestly, I prefer last year’s BCS Championship Game Pro Combat, hands down, for Oregon. Word is Wisconsin will have a specially designed uniform for the Rose Bowl as well, and we’ll wait to see what they have in mind. Wisconsin’s uniforms are made by Adidas, the same company responsible for this year’s Michigan and Notre Dame uniforms. I don’t think it’s a great idea trying to copy Nike’s idea against the signature Nike uniform program, but who am I to say?

Should be interesting.
