Georgia is a team that doesn't try to duplicate other teams' uniforms to conform to a modern, "flashy" look. The result is a uniform that is exclusively "Georgia". Here is a look at other uniforms that are unique to college football ...
The "winged" helmet of the Wolverines is immediately recognizable and although the jersey and pants are solid colors, the combination is amazing! Michigan definitely has some of the most historic uniforms in college football.
The Seminoles' garnet and gold combination is one of the best color combos in college football. More than anything, the unique helmet is one of the top helmets worn by any team.
Texas' uniforms are just classic. The pants are pristine white and the helmet only rocks one of the most well-known symbols in college football. The double white stripe of the sleeves add to the retro feel of the uniforms.
The navy blue on the helmets of the Mountaineers is so dark at first glance it could be mistaken for black. But the navy, white and gold combination gives the uniforms that classic college football feel.
USC keeps it simple. They have no updated helmet decal, no fancy piping just a good combination color and a traditional uniform look.
Ohio State improved their classic uniforms a few years ago when they made the sleeve stripes match the pants and helmet. The stripes pattern give the uniforms a bold look. Of course, the Buckeye leaf decals that cover the helmets (given out for great plays) are the most recognizable part of the entire uniform.
Powder blue is a hard color to pull off as a football player, but it suits the Bruins well. Aside from Oregon, UCLA has the most unique color combination with powder blue and gold. The script UCLA on the helmet also adds a throwback touch to the uniform look.
The Fighting Irish have great uniforms. You have to love the deep blue of the jerseys and the gold helmets look incredibly perfect. (The helmet shells are painted fresh gold every week.)
The Tigers combine the navy blue, white and orange colors in a traditional manner that makes these uniforms pop. The striping on the helmet along with the Auburn University logo give the uniforms a classic feel.
Virgina Tech's uniforms have a nice, throwback look. The colored jerseys and white pants perfectly offset the orange stripes on the shoulder pad and helmets.
LSU is only one of two teams that get a pass on the purple and gold color combination (the Los Angeles Lakers are the other). LSU's flashy play that accompanies the uniforms is what makes the combination great in college football.
The red and white of the Sooners is nice but the best thing about the Sooners uniforms is the shine of the helmets. They must polish those puppies at halftime.
The Gators have a combination of royal blue jerseys and white pants or white jerseys and royal blue pants that fit well together. Both jersey combinations include the orange stripe to tie in to the orange helmet with the script Gators on it.
Alabama’s helmets have a clean, old-school look. Only the player’s numbers and a classic, white stripe interrupt the smooth color of the crimson helmet.
Nebraska’s uniforms have a very traditional look. The white shirt, red pants and old school helmet look is similar to fellow Big 10 powerhouse Wisconsin.
The color combination of the Spartans’ green and white uniforms definitely set them apart from in-state rival, Michigan. The color contrast works well on the football uniforms.
Clemson always seems to be a part of the college football conversation. In light of that, college football fans are also used to seeing Clemson’s orange-clad players streaking down the sidelines.
