The Missouri Tigers, after photos were leaked earlier Saturday, revealed new uniforms for five new sports — soccer, volleyball, men's and women's basketball and, most importantly, football — Saturday afternoon.
Thanks to Nike, Tigers football was completely tricked out, featuring uniforms in 24 possible varieties, according to the athletics department website. Here are some tasty previews (via the Tigers' Twitter):
The road whites.
The home blacks.
The home blacks, from the back. And finally, the gold alternates.
The uniforms were all revealed at a sort of fashion show during halftime of the Black & Gold Spring Game. An explanation of the designs, from the team's release:
While each uniform delivers optimal lightweight performance and protection, Nike worked closely with the athletic department staff to bring relevant elements of the school's rich heritage into a distinguished, modern uniform design. Each uniform now incorporates consistent use of colors, logos, lettering and numbering.
