Nebraska will wear alternate black uniforms when it takes the field for its Sept. 14 showdown with UCLA. (adidas)

Something had to offset all that red on the Nebraska sideline (which, admittedly, had more to do with head coach Bo Pelini’s incessant yelling than the Huskers’ uniforms), and the school seems to have found its solution: On Tuesday, adidas and the University of Nebraska unveiled alternative TECHFIT jerseys, which the team will don when it hosts UCLA at Memorial Stadium on Sept. 14. These uniforms feature much more black than the alternates they wore during a 30-27 win over Wisconsin last September.
The Cornhuskers’ helmet is matte white with a wide black stripe, stencil numbers and a face mask that fades from red to matte black. Nebraska’s famous straight red “N” on its helmets remains unchanged.
