PHOTOS: Missouri unveils new Nike football uniforms
Nike has redesigned the Missouri football uniforms. The Tigers' will be wearing the latest Nike Pro Combat technology as they kick off their first season in the SEC.
The 2012-13 academic year will be Missouri's first in the Southeastern Conference. Thanks to Nike, the Tigers have some fresh uniforms for the transition.
The Tigers' new football uniforms - along with men's basketball, women's basketball, volleyball, and soccer - were unveiled at halftime of the Black & Gold Spring Game on Saturday. According to the official release from the school, Nike worked with Missouri athletic department staff on the design.
"The University of Missouri brand is one that stands for pride, integrity, social responsibility and hard work but until now, our visual identity has been inconsistent across various sports," Don Barnes, Director of Equipment Operations, said in the release. "With Nike's help we have been able to develop brand guidelines that honor our traditions and also reinforce consistency across all athletics. It was important to keep the Tiger at the forefront while creating consistency across our colors, fonts and numbering and we take great pride in unveiling the first five teams today that embody these important changes."
