Washington going with black matte and purple helmets against Oregon

Finally, we can stop talking about faking injuries and Pac-12 refs and move onto more important things, like uniforms. Washington is upping the ante a bit against Oregon this weekend and has joined the matte revolution. I've been saying for awhile now that purple works great a secondary color, and it shows through nicely on the dark helmets. The gold trim around the "W" is also sharp. It might not beat Oregon's Daft Punk alternates, but for the Huskies, it works just fine.

This weekend's Oregon-Washington game has the potential to be one of the best games of a pretty light Saturday slate, and the Pac-12 did us a favor by putting it at 4:00 p.m. ET, so as to help everyone catch up on a bit of sleep as fall allergies start to pummel us into a fraction of what we used to be.
