9 of college football's best new uniforms heading into the 2018 season

Memorable uniforms from the '17 college football season

Nothing says college football offseason like unveiling new uniforms. 

From new brands to new color schemes, from reworked classics to traditional logos, few sports see the creativity and variety in uniforms that college football showcases.

Here are some of our favorite new threads that teams will be debuting in the 2018-19 season, in alphabetical order:

Connecticut

In 2003, all UConn sports rebranded to have the same "Block C" logo. That went by the wayside in 2012, but now it's back. 

Florida

Florida is just the latest school to move to Jordan Brand, and at the SEC media day, the Gators unveiled their new look. The uniform hasn't changed much, but new color combinations were released, and the event was just a tease of what we'll see week in and week out from Florida.

Illinois

Illinois' redesign offers three classic colors and an updated "Gray Ghost" alternate. Gone is the metallic matte finish on the helmets, replaced with a classic shade of orange. Also added: slick new blue helmets

Iowa State

Iowa State made big changes last year, adding a new alternate helmet logo and charcoal jerseys. This year, the black uniform gets an overhaul, going completely grayscale. It's quite the clean look.

Minnesota

The Gophers released three new jerseys, three helmets, and four pairs of pants this offseason, bringing their number of total jersey combinations to more than 100. One of the highlights of the new package is the gold chrome helmet — a sleek futuristic look.

North Carolina State

NC State seems to be embracing the alternate logo, sticking with Tuffy on the helmets this season. The wolf head also appears on the pants now, where "Wolfpack" replaces what used to be a stripe. Speaking of stripes, there are new ones around the collar. This is definitely one of the most unique uniforms NC State has ever had.

Oklahoma

Add another team to the Jordan Brand list. The Sooners' new uniforms feature a slight font change and a fatter helmet logo. Luckily, the classic cream alternates — one of the best in the sport — stay relatively untouched.

South Florida

This season marks the first that South Florida is playing under the Adidas brand after switching from Under Armour. Though we haven't gotten a full look at the uniforms yet, one major change is apparent. Gone is the "USF" logo on the chest, replaced by "South Florida."

Temple

The Owls get a completely new gray alternate this year to go along with the black uniform added in 2016. On all jerseys, new diamond accents appear on the front.

Virginia

The Cavaliers embrace history with their new uniforms, adding 10 stars to the collar to represent Virginia being the 10th state in the union. They're also adopting a new font, which Nike calls "chiseled marble."
