Miami and Adidas rolled out ‘Legend of the U’ throwback jerseys at a launch party on campus Monday.

The jerseys, which will be worn when the No. 15 Hurricanes host Florida State on Oct. 8, are a tribute to the ones the school wore in the 1980s. There are all-orange tops with white and green accents and white tops with green numbers.

“As the Miami football program begins a new era under the guidance of former quarterback and new head coach Mark Richt,” the school said in a statement. “The ‘Legend of the U’ uniforms echo the past while looking to the future, and that overarching theme inspired the collaborative design between the University of Miami’s athletic department and Adidas football.”

You can check out photos and a short video from the unveiling below.

The school is also selling throwback gear online.
