I'd have to give my nod for matchup of the week to Penn State/Pitt. Pitt's new road versions of their throwbacks looked tremendous against the Nittany Lions' classic home uniforms. Just an absolutely beautiful matchup all around.

Disregard how abysmal Auburn's offense is, but this game was a beauty to watch

Is anyone else bothered by the chrome striping and logos on Stanford's helmets?  Just seemed odd and out of place.  

 

Plus, I noticed some inconsistency on their Speedflex stripe application as most players had full stripes that went over the Speedflex gap while some had stripes that were cut out to avoid the gap.  Here's an example:

Nah. They aren't full out chrome, but more metallic, it looks. For teams like Stanford, Auburn, and others, that don't play around with different uniforms a lot, it's a nice way to make the helmets pop even more. 

 

I recently made an Auburn helmet and purchased the metallic decals. They really look good in person, especially compared to the simple, older style. The sheen off the stripes is amazing.

Have they gone garnet/white/black yet since the new helmets were unveiled last year?  Garnet/white/black would be a good "throwback" to the 90s.

They have not, which is a shame.

In the helmet decal industry, that's "chrome"... 

"Metallic" means glitter flake

Can we stop with the "I nominate [random traditional matchup] as uni matchup of the week, so clean!"? There is way, WAY too much orange and white going on there in order for it to look good. Plus personally, Auburn's aways have always sucked, way too much striping to where it looks messy. At least the homes have the blue jersey to make it look more palatable.

Just because you can doesn't mean you should. (Alma College in Michigan).

I think years ago I made a comment about how trash their helmet was, now their Uniforms have caught up to the trashyness.

Visually I liked Missouri vs South Carolina last night. Only gripe was "MIZZOU" on the chest of the Tigers' jerseys. I just never liked that nickname for the school.

I was trying to search for their official football Twitter page, and I typed in "Missouri football" and nothing. They're all in with Mizzou.

This week just proved that traditional looks work better. Gorgeous games to watch.

They've been Mizzou for decades. It's not a recent innovation. My extended family is a from Missouri and I got used to watching Nebraska play them annually in the Big 8 and then Big XII. 

 

They're all about the Zou.

I feel like they're pushing the Mizzou moniker more than they used to. I know they changed the endzones from Missouri to Mizzou around the time they left the Big XII for the SEC.

Uuuuuuuum you do know that's two schools with orange as a main color right? 

 

I mean, we could spend time talking about how awful Arizona looked. Or Iowa State. But they're modern and trendy so automatically better than the old stuff. 

 

I feel enlightened.
