TCU Horned Frogs Unveil New Nike uniforms for Rose Bowl


Yesterday Nike took the evolution of college football
uniforms another quantum leap forward. The Pacific Northwest based
sportswear corporation unveiled its next generation of Nike Pro Combat
uniforms and cleats that top collegiate teams University of Oregon,
Boise State University, and University of Florida are expected to wear
as they take the field in this season's upcoming bowl games.

Texas Christian University (TCU) will be debuting the new Air Zoom
Alpha Talon cleat with a new version of their current 2010 Nike Pro
Combat Uniform in Pasadena, California, January 1, 2011 when they take
on the Wisconsin Badgers in the Rose Bowl.

Take a closer look and notice the scales (you know like Frogs have) on the numbers and pants.

The uniform design emphasizes thermoregulation by featuring Nike Pro
Deflex padding with two-way airflow to cool the body and wick away
sweat. The jerseys are made of four-way stretch woven twill that sheds
moisture. A Flywire collar eliminates two layers of fabric for improved
breathability, providing a more stable anchor to keep the jersey in

The uniform also provides enhanced protection throughout the crucial
"hit zone"-between the knees and shoulders-delivering robust padding
without the bulk. Nike Pro Deflex padding has also been integrated in
the hip and knee areas of the pant for crucial impact protection that
stays in place. The base layer now features customizable protection,
incorporating a thin, incredibly strong carbon fiber plate that comes in
two different sizes and can be placed where needed.
