The uniform is all red, with black "metallic" stripes on the jersey and pants, black-and-silver numbers and a large "N" on the chest.
According to a press release, the uniforms also feature adidas' Techfit Shockweb technology, which the company says makes players lighter and more difficult to tackle.
Nebraska coach Bo Pelini, who's been working to show his lighter side more often, revealed the uniform to his players.
