The Scarlet Knights will have a new look for the 2012-2013 NCAA football season. Rutgers unveiled its Nike Pro Combat uniforms today at the SNY studios in Manhattan. Rutgers spent the last year working with Nike to design the updated threads. Players were on hand to model the team’s latest home (white), away (red) and alternate (black) on-field styles.

The new gridiron gear incorporates the performance benefits associated with the Pro Combat system of dress, a uniform system that is meant to make players lighter and dryer. The Nike Pro Combat base layer wicks away sweat and keeps the body cool, the jerseys are made of four-way stretch nylon and the flywire technology in the collar results in improved breathability and keeps the jersey in place.

The football fashion overhaul includes a sleeker, more modern design, yet the “Block R” logo remains in-tact. According to the school, “Knight-like designs” such as metallic accents and battle “scars” were added to the jerseys and inset ribbing around the shoulders are made to look like iron plates. The pant stripe comes to a point and features a beveled-edge design much like a sword pant, and ties directly into the knight’s plume on the all-new chrome finish helmet. The uniform also features an all-new knight-driven number and font system specific to the team that features a chainmail texture.

The new look for Rutgers Football is a clean, modern style that our student-athletes, recruits and fans will be very impressed with,” said Rutgers Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Tim Pernetti. “Nike, along with our football staff did an amazing job of incorporating our history, mascot, and our most valuable asset, the Block R, while designing a uniform that will generate incredible excitement.”
