Temple at East Carolina is a strong contender for worst matchup of the week. ECU is in purple/black/black and Temple is in black/white/black. Double BFBS. 

I thought the same thing after watching it for about 45 seconds.......

Today’s Oregon combo looks really sharp in this video:

The colors of the different uniform pieces definitely match better in the more natural lighting, and, as I’ve previously said, the wing pattern is clearly black and the same as last season, and this video really helps to show that. I even think these white cleats don’t look quite as out of place as the ones in the release pictures, mainly because the cleats in this video, and pretty much all of the other Doernbecher cleat models, have significantly more yellow and silver on them than the ones used for the release images.

Yep, Sooners look bad in mono red. REALLY hate the collar. Anyone else dislike the WF logo on Wake Forest helmet today v Clemson? I hate that they are so boring. Gimme the Deacon!

Worst helmet matchup likely goes to Western Michigan and Buffalo. Hideous. The Buffalo helmet logo looks even fainter in the light, so it looks a lot like a blank white helmet.

Sorry for the double post, but have these Texas State nightmares been posted? Truly appalling.

As I suspected, USC/Oregon State is a really nice looking game. Some may say there’s too many warm colors between USC’s crimson and gold and the Beavers’ orange pants, but I think it’s really fitting for an early October game when the leaves are just starting to change colors.

Oregon State has one of the best looks in college football right now.

I’d say their set has the potential to be one of the best in college football right now, but there are a number of small details that really bring it down a couple notches. The tapered, and in some cases excessively large helmet stripes, the awkward placement of the beaver head decals, the truncated stripes on the pants,  and the orange uniform elements not having any white are the most prevalent issues, IMO. Changing the helmet and pant stripes to regular full stripes would be a good start, and adding some white to the orange uniform elements would be the next step. Combos like today’s really do show the potential that their set has, but that potential won’t be fully realized unless they fix those issues mentioned above.

Absolutely love that look for them. Wish that would become a permanent thing for 'em!

That gold is horrible! RGR would have been better.  Only good bit is the number set.

I guess having 2 face mask color options is as alternate as Wisconsin gets these days.  I miss the red helmet and pants options.

Texas A&M going W/M/W for the second week in a row as they take on Alabama tonight. I can only assume Bama will be in their usual road look.

In person, the Wake-Clemson game looked great uniform wise. Pictures don't really do it justice, while I do wish Wake wore something black, either helmets or pants.

What is the issue with Miami's helmet decals? Is it just an issue of size or is it placement. They look so bad

First on-field looks at the Ducks tonight:

I may be in the minority on this, but I think they look pretty damn good. The cleats really don’t look too out of place at all, and the yellow helmets work much better with the yellow jersey/pants combo than the black helmets with yellow facemasks did last season, at least IMO.

They do look good.  And very black and yellow...

Looks like the Huskies will indeed be going with the purple pants tomorrow, at least according to these images their recruiting account posted earlier today on twitter:

Previously when they’ve posted images like these, they’ve shown the uniform combo for the games, so it should be a sign of what they’re wearing tomorrow.

 

The black in this uniform looks too forced.
