The iconic Nebraska football uniforms will get a new look for one game this upcoming season.

The Cornhuskers will wear an adidas "Unrivaled" TechFit jersey for their game on Sept. 29 against Wisconsin at Memorial Stadium.

Nebraska has long been known for their red home jerseys with large white numbering in the middle. The "Unrivaled" jersey replaces the white numbering with a large, black "N" while moving the numbers to the top left of the jersey.

Adidas football posted a video Friday morning of the jersey on its YouTube channel, along with a brief description under the video.

This marquee contest is adidas' first Unrivaled Game, an annual matchup of top adidas programs. This year's Unrivaled Game featuring the Cornhuskers and Badgers is themed "The Quick and the Red."
