University of Oregon Celebrates 100th anniversary of First Rose Bowl
October 03, 2016
In 1916, the University of Oregon football team went undefeated and claimed its first Rose Bowl victory. In celebration, the school will add a new "Webfoots" look, complete with blue jerseys and black pants, to its uniform collection.
The throwback aesthetic draws inspiration from the school's original nickname, derived from the group of Massachusetts fisherman whose decedents settled in Oregon's Willamette Valley in the 19th century.
The helmet features the state of Oregon flag, while a section of the original fight song is featured on the sleeve of the jersey.
The University of Oregon's Nike Vapor Untouchable uniform features an all-new chassis with minimal seams and fewer panels (five each in the jersey and pant) than traditional builds.
The Ducks will debut the “Webfoot” look on October 8, 2016.
