The University of Nebraska & adidas Unveil New Husker Bold Alternative Uniforms

Husker Bold Full
The University of Nebraska and adidas today unveiled the new Primeknit Husker Bold alternative football uniforms, which will be worn on Saturday, October 24th for the team's game against Northwestern. Developed in collaboration with the University of Nebraska athletic department, the new Primeknit Husker Bold alternative uniform is at the forefront of design and innovation, providing players the perfect blend of style and technology for elite performance.

Centered around a bold, black colorway, the new look features metallic red numbers with a forged steel outline, combined with a modernized, metallic version of the classic Nebraska stripes that accent the jersey and pants. Providing form and function, the numbers and stripes are serrated, allowing for maximum ventilation and range of motion. Additional detailing includes an oversized, bold "N" logo that is integrated into the pant stripe to match the logo on the helmet and the "Huskers" team moniker is subtlety woven into the fabric on the side of the jerseys.

Made with a cutting-edge, proprietary yarn blend that increases durability and abrasion resistance, Primeknit is the premier compression uniform system, featuring the latest generation of adidas TECHFIT technology. Primeknit helps keep players cool and increases range of motion, giving athletes an unrivaled level of comfort and allowing them to perform at their highest levels. The jersey's padlock system secures tension over the shoulder pads, while the bodymap fit adheres to the player, making it difficult for opponents to grab, hold or tackle.

Rounding out the new look is the new Husker Bold alternative black matte shell helmet, featuring metallic red logos, stripes and player numbers on the back – identical to the jersey, and a metallic red facemask. Additionally, the head-to-toe package includes the adizero 5-Star 4.0 gloves and TECHFIT gun show baselayer – both prominently featuring the "N" logo, along with the adizero 5-Star 4.0 cleats.

The adizero 5-Star 4.0, lighter than any competitor cleat at 8.0 ounces, has a SPRINTSKIN upper with SHOCKWEB reinforcement and a SPRINTFRAME plate that provides maximum acceleration and multi-directional traction, while the adizero 5-Star 4.0 gloves, feature 4-way stretch mesh for compression fit and GripTack 2.0 for consistent control in all weather conditions.
