Playoff unis

With Thursday’s news that Cincinnati is leaving Adidas and Michigan is considering doing the same, we figured it was a good time to update and expand last year’s list of who wears what in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

Not much movement has taken place since last time around. Tennessee has played out its last season as an Adidas school, officially switching to Nike in 2015, but the three stripes struck back against the swoosh by stealing away Arizona State and Miami. Still, Nike dominates the market with 68 of the 128 available schools, a tick or two above 50 percent. Adidas followed with 31 schools (24.2%), then Under Armour with 15 (11.7%) and then Russell Athletic, hanging on with four schools.

In the big-money, bigger-exposure Power Five leagues, Nike owns a larger market share with 44 of 65 available schools, followed by Adidas (12), Under Armour (eight) and Russell Athletic (one).

Adidas has targeted a pair of mid-major conferences, building a majority in the MAC and Sun Belt with 15 14 of the 24 available schools.
