A New Year, A New Look For The Huskers
Nebraska Initiates Uniform Changes For 2002

By Mark Fricke
March 03, 2002

The Nebraska Cornhuskers will be sporting a new look this fall.

For the first time in decades the Cornhusker football team will see significant changes to their standard uniforms. While the helmet with the block "N" will remain the same, and the team colors will remain red and white, the team will wear a new design for their jerseys and pants.

At home games Nebraska's red jersey will have a white piping along both sides of a red spandex insert. The away jersey will feature white shirts with red collars and a red striping down the sides of the inserts.

Still to be decided are the pants. One design continues the while pants with a 4-inch red strip down the leg for both home and away games giving the Huskers a white on white look for away games. There is also interest in wearing red pants with the red home jerseys.

In recent years Nebraska has worn red pants with their white away jerseys and white pants with red jerseys at home.
