The UCLA Bruins are a popular pick to win the Pac-12 this season and represent the conference in the first-ever College Football Playoff. And in college sports, with big-time hype, come big-time uniforms. The Bruins unveiled a brand new alternate thread today, made by adidas and titled “LA Steel”. It’s the first grey uniform the school’s players have ever worn, and it’s part of the apparel manufacturer’s TECHFIT brand. From UCLA:
The new “LA Steel” look marks the first grey uniform in school history. The Bruins’ jerseys and pants are rendered in rich dark onyx grey and feature ultra-light metallic embellishments that shimmer, paying tribute to the bright lights of Los Angeles. UCLA’s famous shoulder stripes complement the city skyline that appears on the sleeves of the TECHFIT compression base layer and the UCLA script mark on the pants. The uniform numbers are inspired by UCLA’s own signature stripes.
Here are some photos that have been unveiled – you can read more about them here.

There’s also a short 15-second promo that the school posted to celebrate the new unis.
UCLA announced it will wear them for a “select” home game this upcoming season. There is no word yet on which opponent it’ll be. Bruins fans – what do you think?
