The new uniforms at Rutgers are a far cry from their traditional look of the past few seasons.
“The new look for Rutgers Football is a clean, modern style that our student-athletes, recruits and fans will be very impressed with. Nike, along with our football staff did an amazing job of incorporating our history, mascot, and our most valuable asset, the Block R, while designing a uniform that will generate incredible excitement. This was a process that lasted over a year with tremendous input from both Kyle Flood and Greg Schiano.” Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Tim Pernetti explained.
The new identity features three different chrome helmet combinations, with different colored striping on each one, and a new knight themed font for the numbers. Nike went to impressive new heights to tie the uniform to the Knight namesake adding a chainmail texture on the numbers and "battle scar" markings throughout the jersey.
