It looks like Washington will boast some new uniforms in 2014. The Huskies released photos of three new looks on Friday.
All three uniform combinations will represent parts of the Washington tradition, according to the school.
The Huskies’ purple home jersey introduces black accents for a tough, bold aesthetic. Black double mesh shoulder panels in the front of the jersey mimic the iconic “jaws” of Husky Stadium. Black has also been featured within the shoulder numbers as well as the baselayer. The Huskies’ away look reverses the aesthetic, harnessing the power of an “arctic blast,” featuring a white jersey and pant as well as a textured white helmet with an anodized purple facemask. The new all-black alternate jersey and pant feature purple and gold accents throughout, incorporating “DAWGS” lettering down the side of the pant. In addition, the Huskies will have the option to integrate a solid gold pant with any of the three jersey colors.
The new uniform design will also introduce a customized number font that pays homage to the Pacific Northwest, with a gold facet on the NW corner of each digit asserting the school’s ownership of the territory. The numbers are the final touch on a new uniform system designed to allow the “Dawgs” to claim their position at the head of the pack.
In a statement, Huskies coach Chris Petersen said the school is embracing a new era with its look.
"Our players can't wait to take the field in these new uniforms. The design tells the story of our program and provides modern innovations in materials and design while embracing the rich tradition that has made Husky football so special” said Petersen.
