How is Cal planning to counter Oregon's "Fightin' Ducks" uniform scheme? Simple: by countering the dark with light and going all-white for Thursday night's matchup in Eugene. While the Ducks will wear flat black helmets, black pants and green jerseys with Puddles all over, Cal is going for simple, yet sophisticated.
Yes, that means everything, including the helmets, will be white. Of course, Cal will still accent its uniforms with the traditional school colors, but the look will be noticeably different for Thursday's nationally-televised matchup.
Interesting choice of uniforms to contrast the Ducks' retro getup. The Bears kind of has a Storm Trooper look here, though, don't they?
