Maryland football has been striving for a new look since Randy Edsall's arrival in 2011, and with the assistance of Kevin Plank - Under Armour CEO and Maryland alumnus - the Terps have become fashion icons, of sorts, in college football.

The school dressed up a pair of mannequins in home and away uniforms to preview the 2012 look. The home (red) and away (white) jerseys are similar to two designs used in the 2011 season, with the only major change reportedly being that these two uniforms will include the players' names on the back. The "Maryland Pride" alternate uniforms, which made their famous/infamous debut against Miami on Labor Day in 2011, and the black alternates will not include the players' names.

Similar to the "Maryland Pride" alternate, the white helmet for both uniforms features a stylized version of Maryland's state flag. The 2012 design is a bit more subtle, but still delivers the message Edsall wants to convey to in-state recruits about the program.
