For the second straight year, the Florida Gators have been chosen by Nike as one of 10 schools who will wear special uniforms for at least one game during the 2010-11 season. According to a Tuesday press release:

“The Nike Pro Combat System of Dress uniforms the schools will wear are engineered to provide superior protection and durability, while utilizing advanced fabrics and tooling that reduce weight. Nike worked diligently with each university to bring relevant elements of the school’s rich heritage into the futuristic elite fit uniform designs. The collaborations with the universities produced the highly customized uniforms that will be revealed just days prior to the start of the 2010 college football season.”

Alabama, Boise State, Miami (FL), Ohio State, Oregon State, Pittsburgh, Texas Christian, Virginia Tech and Virginia are the other nine schools who will be participating in Nike’s promotional campaign.

The dates of the games in which the uniforms will be worn by the respective schools will be announced on Wed., Sept. 1. Last season, the Gators donned the Nike Pro Combat uniforms during their home finale against Florida State on Sat., Nov. 28, 2009.

OGGOA had an exclusive look at the 2009 version of the uniforms; however, the early announcement for 2010 may curb our ability to replicate the information we were able to attain last season.

    The uniform looks nice. And I do remeber when they wore it against the Noles last year. I could have sworn though, that UF also wore a dissimilar uniform in the SEC title game. So, I’m cautiously optimistic about the Gators wearing these things. For obvious reasons.

    • The picture above is the 2009 version of the uniform. The 2010 special Nike Pro Combat uniform will look different. In the SEC Championship, all they did was wear the white helmet. The rest of the uniform was the same, I believe.

    hopefully the uniform won’t include those hideous white helmets. the “F” was only redeeming thing about them.
