The University of Nebraska and adidas unveiled new Red Rising TECHFIT football uniforms Friday morning that the Huskers will wear on Sept. 27 when they host Illinois at 8 p.m. on Homecoming.
Celebrating the 125th year of Nebraska football, the new all-red uniform features black metallic stripes on the jersey and pant, ultra-light black and silver metallic numbers and a large Nebraska “N” on the chest of the TECHFIT compression base layer.
Nebraska’s new uniform also incorporates TECHFIT Shockweb technology. The adidas TECHFIT Shockweb uniform is the only true compression uniform system in the industry. Shockweb fits tighter to the body, making players more difficult to tackle. TECHFIT Shockweb is lighter, helping to make the player fast and increasing his range of motion, to support the athlete's performance at the highest levels.
