Stop me if you’ve heard this one before – Oregon’s football team is getting new uniforms. The Ducks will be wearing Nike’s new Pro Combat “Mach Speed” threads against Texas on December 30th in the Alamo Bowl. Nike PR Director Heidi Burgett was the first to tweet the news:

Both Nike and Oregon have issued official statements on the specifics regarding the new style. Here’s a snippet from Nike:
The uniform features an all-new chassis including the latest in lightweight fabric innovation built for maximum speed, ventilation and comfort. Drawing inspiration from some of the fastest athletes in the world, Nike has applied research and design across multiple sports to create one of the fastest uniforms on the field. Taking insights from Nike’s Swift Suit technology, the new Nike Mach Speed Football uniform fabric construction features an articulated fit to match the athlete’s motion of play. Ultimately this allows the athletes to move with the uniform fabrics, rather than against them.
Ducks fans – what do we think?
