Some of you may find this interesting. Some of you may not care. But I figured I’d continue the tradition of talking about the new uniforms in college football (because some people actually follow teams based on jerseys…..).
Notre Dame: While these have yet to be truly unveiled (there was a mock up for the press conference- http://bigstory.ap.org/article/notre-dame-switching-adidas-under-armor), the Irish made a huge splash by changing over to Under Armour with a 10 year, $90 million contract. Both parties announced that there won’t be much change, but they will still have the “Shamrock Series” alternate uniform once a year. So gone are the stretch mark adidas monstrosities.
Navy: The Midshipmen also changed over to Under Armour this year, ending it’s run with Nike. As you can see here (http://fansided.com/2014/08/02/navy-midshipmen-unveil-new-armour-football-uniforms-2014/#!buIPj5), it’s a big change from Nike.
Oregon: why does this not shock you? The Ducks seem to get new gear every year (making fans’ wallets lighter to keep up). The 2014 look debuted at the Alamo Bowl. This link shows the black and white versions: https://twitter.com/TGphoto_/status/473160717194231809/photo/1 . There is also a “kelly green” look that has surfaced, along with the traditional green.
Florida State: The Seminoles shockingly updated the look that has been around forever. They added a garnet helmet (http://www.tomahawknation.com/2014/4/11/5605846/florida-state-new-uniform-helmet-gallery-logo-fsu#4071429) and made the gold match.

Worst pun goes to NC State with the “Pack in Black” helmet (tbd on jersey) (http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/eye-on-college-football/24566290/photo-new-north-carolina-state-pack-in-black-helmets)
And worst new look goes to Utah. These are the replicas released by Under Armour, but if they are real, why do they have mountains? (http://www.blocku.com/2014/7/24/5934453/utah-footballs-new-jerseys-the-downside). This is the rumored look (https://twitter.com/dahlelama/status/490364999932465152/photo/1)
