The Huskies will wear an Adidas Techfit jersey, desingned to be 30 percent lighter than a traditional jersey with new fabrics, lightweight numbers and ventilation zones.

The NIU “away” look features a white top with a new custom-designed front that offers a red NIU above silver numbers on the chest and shoulders. The look completes with a black helmet, red pants, red/white crew socks and black cleats.
