The Rutgers football team will be facing off against Maryland at Yankee Stadium during the 2017 season.
For that game on Nov. 4, the Scarlet Knights will be wearing some incredible all-black “Stadium Lights” uniforms by adidas that were unveiled on Thursday afternoon.
The all-black uniforms feature a matte black helmet with a chrome Rutgers logo. On the back of the jersey is a subtle outline of the state of New Jersey.
Along with the impressive look, there is also some technology behind the uniforms.
From the official release:
The new Primeknit Rutgers “Stadium Lights” alternative uniform is at the forefront of design and innovation, providing players the perfect blend of style and technology for elite performance. Made with a cutting-edge, proprietary yarn blend that increases durability and abrasion resistance, Primeknit is the premier compression uniform system, featuring the latest generation of adidas TECHFIT technology. Primeknit helps keep players cool and increases range of motion, giving athletes an unrivaled level of comfort and allowing them to perform at their highest levels. The jersey’s padlock system secures tension over the shoulder pads, while the bodymap fit adheres to the player, making it difficult for opponents to grab, hold or tackle.
Well done, Rutgers.
The Scarlet Knights kickoff their 2017 campaign on Friday, Sept. 1 with a clash against the Pac-12’s Washington Huskies.
