Best Uniforms: Part II
3. Southern California home uniform. This is tough. Most of the time when you pair crimson, or maroon or a dark reddish color like SC’s with something it turns out awful (South Carolina, Virginia Tech). But the Trojans wear it with style and it’s one of the best looking uniforms going. Again, all those wins and rings make the uniform look all that much better but still, this “retro-forward” look is sweet. (Did I just make up a new fashion term? Nice)
2. Michigan home uniform. Sorry, it just looks good. The bright yellow…sorry, maize and blue look perfect together. And whatever that is on the helmet gives the Wolverines style and uniqueness. It did at least, until Delaware caught on and put it on their helmets. This should be taken as a compliment. This uniform is simple, but will never look old.
1. Clemson home alternate, orange on orange. I know this one is a bit of a shocker. But if you’ve never been in Death Valley when the Tigers run down that hill into a sea of orange, dressed in orange from head to toe, you probably can’t understand. TV almost doesn’t do it justice. The Orange is so overwhelming almost to the point of nausea, but in a good way. These uniforms have always looked good and it just represents the fun of college football. It almost makes up for the Tigers awful uniforms any time they wear purple.
