Is this a temporary artificial surface in Houston? I thought the Texans had grass but this definitely looks fake.

I think I remember something about them using grass for professional games and turf for everything else.

Nebraska vs BYU was a good looking game.... and that final play was insane!!!

That play is almost like the spirit of Northwestern was getting their revenge

So McNeese St. and LSU were going to wear small decals memorializing hurricanes, but today's game was canceled due to weather...

We played on grass in the Texas Bowl this past season.

Went to the Southern Miss- Mississippi State game. Both teams looked pretty decent; Southern Miss's numbers were surprisingly legible.

Mississippi State has upgraded to the Primeknit template and has avoided all slashes and etcetera. Biggest changes with the template change are straighter shoulder stripes and the mysterious removal of TV numbers. The helmet logo slightly changed also- read about that here: http://msuunitracker.blogspot.com/2015/08/helmet-logo-change-for-2015.html

When the Texans are still playing they'll use turf for high school and college games. After the Texans are done they usually allow the bowl game to use grass. At least that's what I've noticed.

Southern Miss's uniforms were an upgrade, though I think it'd be cool if they went back to Vegas gold rather than yellow.

Mississippi State looked good too; the white facemask looks so much better than the maroon.

While the team is bad, Kansas' new chrome helmets and jersey numbers are a sharp look. If they made the stripe on the pants thinner to match the helmet they'd have a nice all blue set that I normally am not a huge fan of.

I don't know why Memphis' uniforms haven't gotten any love yet. The helmets are on point this year making the logo two tone with chrome.

To me, two-tone logos are usually either boring and in need of an accent or they pop. In this case, Memphis's overly-detailed logo in chrome reflected in the sunlight looks illegible to me, but I'd have to see it in more views, like on TV, to have a final judgment.

They also need to shrink the Jayhawk a little bit.

Breakdown of all the minor changes Mississippi State debuted last night:

Wow, i cant believe they went through the details of this uniform like this. I dont think every change was for the better (helmet) but its nice to see someone comb through these details and make things better overall. If it were someone at adidas who did it, they have hope for the future

As someone said above, it looks like Oregon is going to continue using the Speed Machine templates alongside their newer Mach Speed ones. I just don't get why Oregon haven't transitioned over fully after making such a big deal about the Mach Speed unis when they were released before the Alamo Bowl in 2013. Poor job on Oregon and Nike's part for not having consistent branding.

Was thinking about this issue of multiple templates and designs for Oregon. Does anyone think that Oregon could possibly unveil a new design/template midseason, like they did in 2008 when going from the diamond plate set to the first winged set? they wore the all black winged set against Arizona around midseason of the last year of the diamond plate era. Maybe they'll mix and match the black/yellow and white/green Mach speed jerseys and the two playoff Mach speed jerseys with different pant and helmet combos, and then unveil the new design/template around midseason to where they don't even have to continue to wear the speed machine jerseys this year. Just a thought lol

OH MY GOD ADIDAS STOP PLEASE I BEG YOU

Miami's nameplates are actually unreadable

The idea to use the school's wordmark to create a font for player names is not an unreasonable one (or even a new one). The problem, in this case, is that Miami has some really awful wordmarks:

I wonder, in its style guide, if the university delineates which letters are supposed to be upper case and which are supposed to be lower case. The best execution of this idea would have been to put every letter in lower case, like the "miami" wordmark:
