Reviewing The Uniforms in College Football 

Denis Ilksoy, Staff Writer

College football is a game that is often looked at for its tradition but not recognized for its aspect of fashion. The uniforms in college football often hold a deeper meaning, many are used to honor either someone or an event which always adds a special hint of detail that creates a story surrounding the uniform. Through week four of the season there have already been several alternate uniforms that have debuted.

These uniforms not only have an incredible story behind them but also are beautiful to look at. Boston College debuted these uniforms against UMass on the twentieth anniversary of 9/11 and commemorate the courageous acts of Welles Crowther who saved many lives during the attacks on the world trade center. I love the bandana print used on the numbers as well as the back of the helmet, Welles was infamous for wearing his red bandana wherever he went so this is a cool addition to the uniform. Overall, it is not perfect, but I would easily give it a 9/10 and would say it is one of the best uniforms I have seen in the past few years.

The USF SoFlo uniforms are very interesting and are unlike any other uniforms in college football. The neon aspect is not something I can necessarily get behind and the different shades of green really throw off the uniform in my opinion. The font of the numbering along with the awkward shades of yellow and green makes this a below average uniform, its especially disappointing because USF has a lot of potential to have great uniforms with their color scheme. Overall, these uniforms are a 3/10 and need improvement.
