Nike unveils new uniforms for all 4 College Football Playoff teams
These are the home versions of the digs these teams will wear in the Rose, Sugar, and championship games.
Nike has unveiled the home uniforms for the four teams set to play in the inaugural College Football Playoff. Alabama, Oregon, Florida State, and Ohio State are all Nike schools, and each will wear uniforms with a diamond-colored swoosh to symbolize the championship ring.
Oregon will be going a bit old school with their design, going back to the giant O helmet. For the most part, all of the teams’ uniforms look pretty close to their normal get-ups, with the addition of that diamond swoosh. Alabama has a base layer (aka undershirt) with “mantras, quotes, and team inspirations” that also happens to look like an elephant’s skin. Ohio State’s base layer and gloves include handwritten notes from former head coach Woody Hayes.
The teams will be wearing some special cleats, as well.

As ESPN points out, 14 of the 16 BCS titles were won by Nike schools, so the all-Nike playoff lineup isn’t unusual.
