Oregon uniforms: The Ducks are breaking out the all-white Stormtrooper look for tonight’s game at USC, and it announced the look with a Star Wars-themed trailer.
When the Ducks and Trojans kick off tonight at the Coliseum, they will be rocking these very fresh all-white unis.

As Oregon does every week, it created a very detailed microsite for the uniforms, complete with a dramatic trailer. This weeks uses the audio from a trailer for the upcoming film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which will hit theaters on December 16. Actor Forest Whitaker provides the narration.
Based on everything here, the Ducks are clearly going for a Stormtrooper theme. Oregon fans hope that quarterback Justin Herbert does not have a Stormtrooper-like performance. While the Star Wars villains have notoriously bad aim throughout the movies, Herbert was fantastic for Oregon last week in the Ducks’ 54-35 win over Arizona State, completing 31-of-42 passes for 489 yards and four touchdowns. Mark Helfrich will need a similar effort against the Trojans, who have played very good football as of late, and should be chomping at the bit to face Oregon’s abysmal defense.
Oregon and USC kick off at 7 p.m. ET, and will be broadcast on ESPN. USC is a 17-point favorite in the game.
