Oregon’s uniforms look like actual ducks for Colorado game

Walks like a Duck, talks like a Duck, must be a Duck.

Nike/ University of Oregon

The Oregon Ducks will take the field on Saturday dressed like actual ducks against the Colorado Buffaloes.

Oregon will wear green jerseys with bright yellow lettering, white pants along with orange socks and cleats. The stitching of "Once A Duck, Always A Duck." in the collar of the jerseys is dedicated to Oregon’s alumni.

This will be the first time the Ducks take the field with orange in their uniforms. The latest combination presented by Nike will be tested with a "new design material" during the game. Nike founder and philanthropist, Phil Knight, prides himself on Nike being Oregon’s largest contributor to athletics and the Ducks often test products before being released to the general public.

According to Nike, the uniform are made of a woven material that draw moisture away from the body and weighs less than a uniform typically used. The Ducks have enough uniform combinations from Nike (without repeating) to last until the year 3344.

Colorado and Oregon will meet at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Ore for a 3:30 p.m. MT Kickoff on Saturday (9/24).
