UCLA unveils new Under Armour football jerseys

UCLA’s new football uniform is a tribute to the team’s past.

Released online Saturday morning, the UCLA football uniform uses the school’s traditional “Powderkeg Blue” and “Mighty Gold” on both the home and away jerseys, maintains the script UCLA decal with the tail on the helmet and includes Under Armour’s new branding.

The jerseys are not a vast departure of last year’s look, but have updated colors to fit Under Armour’s color palette. In an effort to streamline the athletic department’s brand, the company eliminated the use of navy on the white away uniforms, lining the UCLA stripe with Powderkeg Blue instead of navy on both the shoulder and white away pants. The Powderkeg Blue numbers on the white jersey also don’t have a gold outline, like last year’s away uniform.

New uniforms won’t be worn in NCAAs

Adidas’ new Zubaz-inspired uniforms may be a sartorial abomination, but at least they won’t be around for too long.

Howland was surprised that even the Wall Street Journal chimed in, but said the players loved them: “They’re so excited to wear those. They’re so happy. They can’t wait.” He might be overblowing the reaction; walk-on Nick Kazemi, for one, is still undecided.
