It was a quiet year in the FBS apparel wars. So quiet, in fact, that unless I’m missing someone, not a single FBS school announced a change from one provider to another. In fact, even the intra-provider changes have stopped, as the number of schools wearing Nike subsidiary Jordan Brand has stopped at four.

Perhaps the biggest news on this front came in early September, when Nike announced Colin Kaepernick as a brand ambassador. Lots of people were really, really mad at the time… and pretty much all of them have forgotten about it. None of the Swoosh’s 69 partners jumped ship and, according to the numbers, neither did their investors. Nike’s stock price sits at $89.48 as of this writing, compared to $81.25 on Aug. 31, 2018.

Given the lack of news, let’s rehash part of last year’s writeup, which does a good job explaining Nike, Adidas and Under Armour’s respective strategies.

Examine each conference and you’ll see a clear pattern emerge. Adidas is an aggressive bargain shopper; the Three Stripes matches Nike’s 27 Group of 5 contracts, and owns 20 of the 36 available contracts in Conference USA, the MAC and the Sun Belt. At the Power 5 level, Adidas mirrors Under Armour, owning a presence in every corner of the country, but not much more than that. Poaching Washington from Nike, for instance, gives Adidas one Pac-12 North school, matching its one Pac-12 South school, Arizona State.

Oh, there was one change.

Finally, someone has busted Nike’s monopoly on the College Football Playoff. Five years into the system, Notre Dame (Under Armour) became the first non-Swoosh team to reach the final four. (The Irish lost to Clemson, 30-3.)

Now in its sixth year, behold FootballScoop’s annual survey of Who Wears What in FBS.
