Oregon Football launches the uniform they will wear against BYU

EUGENE, Oré. – Whenever facing Oregon football, one of the big storylines is always, what will the Ducks wear?

With No. 25 Oregon up against No. 12 BYU, locals were interested in what the Ducks would sport this week.

Even BYU football players like Malik Moore wondered what the Ducks would be trotting Saturday afternoon at Autzen Stadium.

“Whenever I think of Oregon, I think of cool uniforms. I try to see what kind of uniforms they wear against us to be honest,” Moore said.

Oregon Football will wear “Nightmare Green” against BYU

Oregon Football’s social media team has dropped the uniform threads they will be wearing against BYU.

Oregon will wear “Nightmare Green” uniforms. According to Ducks Digest, this is the second iteration of nightmarish green uniforms in Oregon’s long line of Nike sons.

The numbers are electric yellow, which has inspired some Jazz/BYU fans on social media to draw comparisons to the new Utah Jazz uniforms.

Oregon last wore nightmare green during the 2019 season.

BYU wears “Royal Sitake” yarns

BYU will wear their “Royal Sitake” uniforms which consist of a white jersey and pants with royal blue trim and BYU’s “blue lightning” helmet.

The last time BYU played Oregon was at the 2006 Las Vegas Bowl. That night, Oregon threw a ghastly yellow flamethrower helmet with a jersey featuring metal plates on the shoulder pads. Even the innovative ducks have come a long way in the quality of their uniforms.

BYU’s last visit to Eugene at Autzen Stadium was in 1990, when the No. 4-ranked Cougars were upset by the Ducks, 32-16.

Kickoff for Saturday’s Top 25 clash is at 1:30 p.m. (MT) on FOX and KSL NewsRadio. Expanded pre-game radio coverage begins at 10 a.m. on 102.7 FM, 1160 AM and the KSL NewsRadio app.
