The Miami football program revealed updated uniform on Monday afternoon that includes a return to the Dade Bold font used by the Hurricanes from 2000-16 and other small changes.
The overall look of Miami’s uniforms remains true to the “Legends of the U” set unveiled midway through the 2016 season, with a traditional striping pattern on the sleeves and pants. Those uniforms included a block font, which – as mentioned – have been scrapped in favor of the custom font.
The Hurricanes also placed the “U” on the collar inside of a shield, as it was often stretched and distorted on adidas’ Primeknit A1 template, and replaced the ACC logo on the front helmet bumper with a Miami wordmark.
Although they didn’t appear in the video release, these changes – which effectively merge the 1980s and 2000s – will be applied to the alternate green and road white jerseys, as well.
The updated uniforms will make their on-field debut when No. 14 Miami takes on top-ranked Alabama at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Sept. 4. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. on ABC.
