Update, 11:53 p.m.: We now have a photo gallery, which includes a few more photos than this post. Plus, the full-screen option will give you a closer look at the uniform details.

After weeks of anticipation, Maryland unveiled its new football uniforms on Monday night at a College Park fashion show. The Terrapins will have a dizzying array of uniform combinations to choose from this season, with two different helmets: one black with what seems to be a matte finish, and one white dotted with a turtle-shell pattern.

Several of the combinations can be seen in the photo above. According to the official Maryland athletics Twitter feed, fan input will be used to pick the Terps’ uniform for the opener against Miami.

Snap reaction: The all-black unis work much better than the Hoth-style all-whites. Some of them feature an intense amount of yellow. Others make me think of Iowa State.

But what do you all think? Channel your inner fashion critic in the comments.
