Adidas released the Nebraska Huskers' new look in a video on YouTube.  The video also lists a date of September 29, 2012, which is the date of the Wisconsin-Nebraska game, and homecoming for Nebraska.

If you do not like spoilers, do not read on.  The new uniforms are similar to the old ones, except it is all red with black in places where it is usually white.  The top and bottom are all red, and the white stripes on the shoulders are black.  The numbers on the front and on the back are black with a white outline.  The famous Nebraska "N" gets a makeover too with the same black and white outline finish. 

Also, the long rumored Black helmet is part of the alternate uniform.

The uniforms looks pretty cool in my opinion.  It is a neat changeup from the uniforms that Nebraska always wears.  Though it does remind me of the Red Raiders of Texas Tech a bit.  I'm not saying we should fully adopt the uniform as our permanent uniform, but it is a cool one-time-a-season wear. 

It will be interesting to see if the uniforms get multiple wears, or if this is a one time thing we don't see again, like the Red Out Around the World.
