With its primetime tilt against Wisconsin just 72 days away, the University of South Florida on Tuesday afternoon unveiled a brand new set of uniforms on adidas’ latest template.
The university entered into an eight-year partnership with adidas last summer, but the football team was oddly relegated to the company’s older Techfit Primeknit template in the fall. That’s been rectified with this update, though, as the Bulls will be the only program in the country wearing the WVN A1 template this season.
According to adidas, the WVN A1 template delivers advanced fit, feel and lightweight technical design for enhanced performance. And while most observers won’t notice the difference, the uniform is much cleaner than the ribbed Primeknit A1 template the company debuted during the 2018 Army All-American Bowl.
“We are very excited that in the second year of our partnership with adidas our football team will be the only one in the country wearing their lightest weight uniforms,” said USF vice president of athletics Michael Kelly. “We look forward to the Bulls looking great and feeling great in the new lightweight, breathable material.”
As for the design, USF’s new green and white uniforms feature a gold horn on each shoulder rather than the university’s iconic “Bull U” logo. The reflective metallic material, which was developed in Israel, also outlines the numbers and lettering on the uniforms.
The word mark and number font have been carried over from the last set, while the new white road uniforms have a green sleeve cap and cuffs, as well as a truncated green stripe down the pants.
You can check out more photos below, though it’s worth noting the “Bulls” nameplate is for modeling purposes only and players will have their names on the actual jerseys this fall.
