Athletic director Tom Osborne announced today that Adidas will be rolling out an alternative jersey for one game this season for the Cornhuskers. However, he was quick to point out that the new addition will not stray too far from their traditional uniforms.
Part of that traditional look is the white helmet, which Adidas approached Osborne with the intention of changing for the one game. Osborne initialy told them that the iconic helmet was off limits and would not be touched....but there is word today that perhaps the helmets will be changed as well.
The design has yet to be be finalized, but Osborne did say that they will be "futuristic" but not "outlandish" (we wonder who he could be referring to...).
