The college football season is winding down, and while all the focus has turned the playoff, bowl season and what's ahead for the sport, let's be honest, you don't want to talk about that.
You want to talk about the important stuff. Like uniforms!
With the season entering its final few weeks, we've decided it's time to look at the best and worst alternate uniforms of 2016.
Here are 15, ranked from worst to best!

Maryland ("Red Ops" uniforms vs. Ohio State, Nov. 12)
The evil stepbrother of the NFL's "color rush" uniforms, Maryland's "Red Ops" unis were almost universally panned on the Internet as soon as they debuted last Saturday. The only thing worse than the uniforms? Maryland's play on the field. The Terrapins lost to the Buckeyes 62-3.
Kansas ("Limestone" uniforms vs. Oklahoma State, Oct. 22)
These "alternate" uniforms look an awful lot like the regular uniforms the Jayhawks wear on any given Saturday. So, too, did their performance on the field. Kansas lost to Oklahoma State 44-20 the day it wore these unis and still is looking for its first Big 12 win since 2014.
Notre Dame ("Shamrock Series" uniforms vs. Army, Nov. 12)
The "Shamrock Series" unis have looked good in the past, but this year, not so much. Then again, couldn't you say the same about Notre Dame football in general?
Nebraska ("Husker Chrome" alternate uniform vs. Northwestern, Sept. 24)
The least "alternate" of alternate uniforms we've seen this year, as well as the least original name. There's certainly nothing wrong with them, just nothing spectacular either.
Texas A&M ("Junction Made" uniforms vs. South Carolina, Oct. 1)
Cool uniforms to commemorate the Aggies' undefeated season in 1956.
LSU ("Gridiron Gold" uniforms vs. Mississippi State, Sept. 17)
I liked the mustard yellow get-up, which was supposed to look similar to the uniforms the school wore in the 1940s. However, what "Gridiron Golds" will best be remembered for is that they were the jerseys the Tigers wore in the last home game of the Les Miles era, -- that also doubled as the last win Miles ever had at the school. He was fired following a loss to Auburn a week later.
Ohio State (alternate uniforms vs. Nebraska, Nov. 5)
My colleague Dan Carson was not a fan of these uniforms, but I think there's something charming about the unis that honor the school's 1916 national championship team. No, they're not snazzy, but they really do look like something straight out of a different era -- and that is what alternate uniforms are supposed to be. Bravo, Ohio State (two emoji thumbs up from me.)
Oklahoma ("The Rough Rider" uniform vs. Kansas State, Oct. 15)
This isn't the first time the Sooners have worn the crimson and cream, and hopefully it won't be the last. Just a solid, smooth look.
Oregon ("Once a Duck, Always a Duck" uniforms vs. Colorado, Sept. 24)
Can a team really wear an "alternate" uniform, if its uniforms literally alternate every week? Who knows, but I'm digging the "Once a Duck, Always a Duck" look, which included green uniforms, and orange socks and cleats. As you might have guessed, this isn't the last time you'll see Oregon on this list.
Louisville ("Young Patriot" uniform vs. Wake Forest, Nov. 12)
UCLA ("Salute to the Service" uniforms vs. Oregon State, Nov. 12)
Same deal with UCLA, which wore these uniforms to honor the military this past Saturday. The best part? The Bruins picked up their first win in over a month in these unis when they beat Oregon State 38-24.
Washington ("Salute to the Service" uniforms vs. USC, Nov. 12)
Same concept as UCLA, with the same name. Unfortunately for the Huskies, they didn't play nearly as well as they looked Saturday, suffering their first defeat of the season.
Miami ("Legends of the U" jerseys vs. Notre Dame, Oct. 29
No school has a richer football tradition in the past 30 years than Miami, so what better way to channel that great, historic past thea with throwback uniforms? The Hurricanes debuted these in a throwback showdown that was truly for the ages.
Pitt (retro uniforms vs. Georgia Tech, Oct. 8)
Pitt's throwback uniforms weren't given an official name, nor do they need one. They're that awesome. It's not often the Internet can agree on anything, so the fact that these got universal praise tells you everything you need to know.
Oregon ("The Webfoots" vs. Washington, Oct. 8)
In a season full of awesome throwback uniforms, these were the best. The unis were named "the Webfoots" because that's what Oregon's actual nickname was in its first few years of existence (more details here). The only bad news? As good as the uniforms looked, the Ducks played equally as bad, losing to Washington by a staggering score of 70-21.
