Syracuse football debuted its new uniforms Wednesday and they are…well, you be the judge.
In conjunction with Nike, players helped design the new look, which features three uniforms – a home, road and alternate kit.
The main addition is the chest patch, which serves as a homage to the school’s “legend of 44” – one of the most storied numbers in college football history worn by Jim Brown, Ernie Davis and Floyd Little, among others. The military-inspired graphic in the patch also references the school’s quad and the word “D.I.S.C.I.P.L.I.N.E” is printed inside the jersey.
Rising redshirt junior quarterback Terrel Hunt was one of the players that donned the new jerseys.
“We wanted to make it new but also keep the same tradition,” he said. “It was like the first day of Christmas for us.”
