If the new Miami uniforms look familiar to you, they should. The Hurricanes are looking toward the past with their latest design.
The throwback look, dubbed “Legend of the U,” will hearken back to the program’s glory days of the 1980s and 1990s. The new Miami uniforms are part of adidas’ Primeknit design as well.
The new look will debut on October 8 against Florida State and will become the team’s primary home and away kits from that point on. You can see in the photos below how closely the unis resemble those from The U’s dynasty years. Oh yea, Sebastian the Ibis also appears on the gloves, which is cool.

Our thoughts? We’re fans of the look. It is simple, and time-tested. When it comes to uniforms, anytime you can go back to something that worked for you (and looks good), you should do it.
The 3-0 Hurricanes are No. 15 in the new AP poll. They travel to Bobby Dodd Stadium this weekend to take on Georgia Tech. Kickoff is at 12 noon.
