Baylor’s athletic department has lacked color consistency across its 18 sports programs for several years, but the Bears unveiled a new united brand on Saturday during the football team’s pre-Spring Game festivities, which includes new uniforms and a new secondary logo.
Though the university’s official colors are Baylor Green and Championship Gold, the football and women’s basketball programs have been using Vegas gold; the men’s basketball team wore neon yellow; and the baseball program donned old gold. Each team will now use a brighter, more traditional gold.
With that, the football team introduced all-green, all-gold and all-white uniforms on Saturday, which will surely be mixed and matched in some capacity moving forward.
The new, cleaner threads feature a rounded number font that includes notches inside the numeral, which replaces the jagged font created by Nike in 2013. The uniforms also no longer have a massive paw print on the shoulders, which made the Bears’ old uniforms instantly recognizable.
Baylor’s new font carries over to every other sports program, though the basketball team also unveiled a volt-accented alternate jersey. That color has become a staple of the basketball program, and that’ll allow the Bears to deviate from time to time.
Check out some photos of the new uniforms below:
Baylor opens the 2019 football season on Aug. 31 against Stephen F. Austin, which will be the first time we see the new threads in action.
