The Nebraska Cornhuskers unveiled a brand new uniform on Tuesday that was met with an overwhelmingly positive reaction.
It’s not often that everyone can agree, but that’s what happened when the Cornhuskers unveiled their new all-white/chrome uniforms that will be worn when they travel to meet Northwestern on Sept. 24.

Nebraska detailed the reasoning behind their new look in a press release.
The University of Nebraska and adidas today unveiled the new Husker Chrome alternate football uniform, which will be worn Saturday, September 24th at Northwestern. Developed in collaboration with the University of Nebraska athletic department, and inspired by the city of Lincoln, Nebraska, also know as the “Star City,” the new Husker Chrome alternate uniform blends crisp, modernized design with a tribute to Nebraska’s clean, classic signature look.
The special edition uniform is centered around a pristine white colorway with metallic accents to create a bold alternate look for the Cornhuskers. The modernized style features metallic red numbering with metallic chrome outlining on the jersey and is accented with metallic chrome stripes on both the jersey and the pants. Additional detailing includes an oversized, metallic red bold “N” logo that seamlessly aligns with the pant stripes.
As a tribute to the traditional aesthetic of the Cornhuskers football program, the helmet features a metallic red “N” logo on the sides and is accented with player numbers featured in metallic red and metallic chrome outlining on the back of the helmet, showcasing the Star City’s ability to shine.
They say: “when you look good, you feel good.” For the sake of the Cornhuskers and their loyal fans, let’s hope that is the case when they stroll onto the gridiron at Ryan Field.
