College Football Uniform Concepts FBS, FCS, D2 & D3- Hawai'i Warriors


NH4

Recommended Posts

The first week of college football is finally here and I thought I'd celebrate the beginning of the season by starting a new thread of college football uniform concepts. A couple years ago I realized I've done concepts for high school, non-college football, and NFL teams but none for my favorite sport, College Football. I've been working on these concepts off-and-on for 4 years but (like many people) I've had way more free time in the last year to create more concepts. Now this is a bigger project than anything I have done because this is not only for FBS teams but FCS, D2, and D3 teams as well. 

 

My problem with my past concepts on here is that I start a topic before all of my concepts are actually done but not this time. I have all the FBS, FCS, and D2 teams completed, and about half of the D3 teams completed. It's been tough creating unique identities for smaller schools that I hadn't even heard of but it's been fun and I'm excited to post my concepts. I'll start out posting the FBS teams first and then go FCS, D2, and finish with D3 posting in random order.  Since I am a little bias I'm going to start with my favorite team; Wisconsin.

WISCONSIN BADGERS
LOGO

fcrricT.png

  • As a Badger fan one thing has irked me forever, the black drop shadow when there is no black on the uniforms or anywhere else
  • Eliminated the black so now the colors are just red and white

 

UNIFORMS

DESIGN

  • Same forward stripe motive that Under Armor has used since they outfitted Wisconsin

HELMET

  • Updated logo on helmet
  • Pulled the trigger and finally made the white facemask the primary. I really like it and I know it's very popular with Badger fans and it just creates a clean look

JERSEY

  • Updated logo on chest

PANTS

  • Changed stripe to where the break is now in the middle (compared to where it is now) to match the sleeves stripes

SOCKS

  • Changed the black socks to white and added the forward stripe

 

Not any big changes because I think Wisconsin has a pretty solid identity. But minor changes is not how it's going to be for a lot of teams including the next 3 teams (Tulane, West Virginia, and UTSA) which our some of my favorite re-designs. Thanks and C&C is greatly appreciated!

Eliminating the shadow from the Motion W and going for a white facemask resulted to a cleaner look. Great start!

 

Also, stretching all the way to Division III is a labor-intensive task, but you would like to challenge yourself. I wish nothing but the best for this project.

Thanks that was what I was going for for Wisconsin so I'm glad it works. Yeah it's been a ton of work for sure but it's been fun pushing myself to create concepts for a lot of schools

Good luck with this idea, I was going to make this herculean attempt but it would be a VERY long term project.

Thank you and yeah for sure I don't blame you. I've been working on this for 4 years and still have more teams to create concepts for so yeah it's taking a long time but it's been fun.

TULANE GREEN WAVE

DESIGN

  • Tulane really has hit a home run with their branding in recent years so I wanted to continue that
  • T Wave logo and the Angry Cartoon Wave are both used on these uniforms a lot
  • I like the 3 Stripe design Tulane uses sometimes so I went with that  to create a cohesion throughout all the uniforms (which Tulane does not have right now)
  • Made the stripe seem "wavy" similar to my Dolphins concept. I thought it worked perfect for a team that literally has "Wave" in their team name

HELMET

  • White helmet only
  • Green or blue facemask depending on the jersey and/or pants
  • New stripe added
  • T Wave and Angry Wave are both used
  • New Orleans flag on the back

JERSEY

  • Green home jersey, white away jersey, and blue alternate jersey
  • Tulane wordmark on the chest
  • New stripe pattern on sleeves
  • Kept the block numbers from the current jerseys because I thought it fit with the kind of classic look of the stripes rather than match the wordmark 

PANTS

  • White, green, and blue pants
  • New stripe on each

SOCKS

  • White socks with green or blue accents

Like I said, Tulane has done a really good job with their branding and colors so I wanted to continue that but add a little bit of my own flair to it. I've got West Virginia up next, which was a school I had an idea for their design for a long time so I'm excited to show them. Thanks and C&C is greatly appreciated.

DESIGN

  • A little bit of old school meets new school
  • Old number font returns! Now with a related type font
  • Sleeve design is the "V" from the logo but flipped to represent the peak of a mountain

HELMET

  • Navy and gold helmet
  • West Virginia state silhouette on the front bumper and "Country Roads" on the back (just like they have now)

JERSEY

  • New sleeve design and number font added

PANTS

  • Plain pants like their current uniforms. I think it's a clean look and pairs well with the plain helmet West Virginia has had forever

SOCKS

  • Navy socks with gold accents

 

Up next is UTSA with a very popular design formerly used by the only pro sports team in town. Thanks for looking and C&C is greatly appreciated!

First off, I highly commend you for taking on this gargantuan task. I'm looking forward to keeping up with the entire series.

 

Wisconsin: Nice clean look that looks like them, but provides some good tweaks to their current set.

Tulane: Love the use of wavy striping. The color balance is awesome and I'm glad you used both the angry wave and wave T logos.

WVU: This is my favorite so far. West Virginia could take a look like this and keep it until the end of time.

I love fulfilling the dream of Reds fans everywhere by ditching the black for Wisconsin. In practice, I worry whether that would simply make them blend in more with Nebraska in the same conference. Then again, Nebraska also has a hard-on for throwing black into their identity. Either way, looks sharp & professional.

 

Tulane has possibly my favorite color scheme in sports and your consistent, traditional design let's them shine. The wave effect is really cool but might need to be bigger, as it's very subtle to the point where I could see it coming off like a manufacturer mistake. Also the Wave mascot rules and should be the only logo they put on that helmet, IMO.

 

WVU looks awesome as well. Their uniforms are usually fairly simple, which you maintain, but the mountain sleeve stripe really elevates the set by making it distinct. Honestly impressed, the way that element provides color balance while tying in the logo & nickname in one fell swoop. 

 

College football offers such a breadth of unique identities to work with and this series is off to a great start!

Thank you it's been a ton of work but I didn't have much else to do other than this project, so this has occupied my time for sure

Thank you and yeah I'm a Brewers fan so I watch the Reds a decent amount and every time I see their uniforms I think how much better they would be by getting rid of the black drop shadows. I also had that thought with Wisconsin and Nebraska but I think switching the Badgers to the white facemask full time balances out the issue of looking the same.

As far as Tulane goes, from afar, the uniforms look like what they're recently wearing. Good job on making the stripes wavy, though.

Thank you I'm actually  glad you think that about Tulane because I love their current uniforms so I didn't want to stray too much from them

I am very excited about this series! I think WVU is excellent. Just curious, no white helmets for the Mountaineers?

 

When you get to DIII, can't wait to see what you do for my Alma Mater, Alvernia University. 

So one of my goals was to consolidate the vast amount of uniform options most teams have to kind of ensure a solid identity and I felt navy and gold were much stronger options for West Virginia, especially considering a lot of teams have introduced white helmets recently. And for Alvernia, those gray jerseys were the first thing I got rid of because I like the color scheme so much and gray just muddies it up. I also love the name Golden Wolves and the logo's really sweet

UTSA ROADRUNNERS

LOGO

DESIGN

  • Stripe pattern comes from the Spurs Fiesta set
  • Removed the bevels in the font just like I did in the logo. One thing I noticed while doing this project is that Texas teams LOVE their bevels for some reason

HELMET

JERSEY

  • Navy, white and orange jerseys with the new stripe added

PANTS

  • Navy, white and orange pants with the new stripe added

SOCKS

  • White with blue accents

Up next are Notre Dame and Georgia who are two very traditional teams but I did make some minor tweaks to each design. Thanks for looking and as always C&C is greatly appreciated

HELMET

  • Green accents instead of blue when paired with the alternate jersey

JERSEY

PANTS

  • Unchanged

SOCKS

  • Color socks match the jersey color

Like I said, a traditional team that doesn't need many changes but I still found a way to update them. C&C is greatly appreciated and Georgia will be next.

We used to be the Crusaders and had a wonderful logo. Most of the alumni I know hate the name change. There are a couple of other schools nearby with "Golden" in the nickname.  But it got us football, so there's that.
