With football season around the corner, Adidas unveils a new uniform for University of Nebraska.
Here’s a look at the new Husker ’97 alternate football uniform, which will be first worn on Oct. 7 against Wisconsin.
Inspired by the 1997 undefeated squad that went 13-0, the Husker uniforms celebrate the 20th anniversary of the championship team that had an average margin of victory of 30 points and produced five All-Americans, a Lombardi Award winner and an Outland Trophy winner.
Adidas says the uniforms are centered around a one-to-one recreation of the mesh jerseys worn during the 1990’s. They feature recreated verions of the visual aesthetic and texture of the traditional numbers by utilizing a new framis screen-printing technique. Additional detailing includes classic white pants and the traditional white Cornhuskers helmet featuring a classic red “N” logo on the sides and accented with player numbers featured in red the back of the helmet.
Additionally, the Husker ‘97 theme continues on the TECHFIT compression baselayer, which features the “Huskers” wordmark prominently place on the chest and accented with traditional stripes on the sleeves. The uniforms are worn alongside black adizero 5-Star 5.0 glove and all black adidas adizero and FREAK cleats.
