College football: Oregon releases ‘Once a Duck, Always a Duck' uniforms
Oregon, known for its flashy, fashion forward uniforms, announced a new uniform set to be worn at Saturday’s game against Colorado. They resemble the university's mascot -- the Oregon Duck.
“Once a Duck, Always a Duck” looks to be the name of the new uniform. As for what they look like, well they are as mad scientist amazing as you would expect -- the helmets are sparkling silver and white with a simple green Oregon “O” logo on the side and finished with an orange facemask, meant to resemble a duck’s bill. Jerseys are green with yellow accents, including the Oregon duck logo on the shoulders as well as “Once a Duck, Always a Duck” embroidered around the neck. The pants are white and stretch down to meet an orange sock and cleat combo, resembling a duck’s feet. Overall, it looks different from what Oregon’s uniforms have been looking like as of late, but it seems like something fans have been looking for the past few years.
Oregon is going back to their roots with these uniforms, a change from the space age uniforms we come to expect out of Eugene.
Clearly the Duck is rather excited about Oregon's uniforms for Colorado Week. He was so enthused, he took to Pericscope for an interview with fans:
There is nothing like the Oregon Duck.
