Adidas Unveils Special Mississippi State Uniforms For Egg Bowl
adidas today unveiled maroon football uniforms with gold numbers to be worn by Mississippi State when it plays Ole Miss in the Egg Bowl on Thanksgiving Day. The gold theme "continues to the helmet where it accents the state bannered 'M.'" Across the chest, "Hail State" replaces the usual "Mississippi State" lettering, which is now stitched into the pants. The uniform "also comes with special cleats that read 'Hail' on the left heal and 'State' on the right" (CLARIONLEDGER.com, 8/22).
Meanwhile, Northwestern's football team will wear white helmets for its Aug. 31 opener against Cal in Berkeley, marking the first time it has "worn white helmets since 1980" (TWITTER.com, 8/22).
