After seeing Ducks junior wideout B.J. Kelley show off two new pairs of cleats yesterday, we had an inkling that there might be more innovation on the way in Eugene. Today, Nike and Oregon unveiled two brand new uniforms for the program’s Spring Game, set to take place this Saturday. The first is a dark green and silver combo, while the second features bright yellow pants, cleats, lettering and helmets. Check it all out:

The new threads are Nike’s Mach Speed line, titled “Salute The Day” – which is also what the jerseys read on the back. Here’s a little more, via Nike:
For the past five years, Nike and the University of Oregon have partnered to create a custom-designed uniform for the team’s final Spring scrimmage. This year, both the home and away uniforms feature unique details including “Salute the Day” nameplates, as well as custom insignias and patches to honor those who serve our country by land, by sea and by air.
Ducks fans – what do you think?
