The Nebraska Cornhuskers have decided to break out throwback uniforms for Saturday’s Legends Weekend game against the Northwestern Wildcats.
Adidas has come up with a uniform to pay tribute to the 1911-12 Cornhusker team that won the school's first conference title, back when Nebraska was part of the Missouri Valley Conference. The 1911-12 team went 14-1 overall and 8-0 in the conference under the coaching of E.O. “Jumbo” Stiehm.
Huskers.com shared the details of the uniform:
The jerseys, specially created by adidas for Saturday’s game, are inspired by the 1911-12 team and feature cream colored tops and bottoms with a White accent stripe with an N logo across the middle of the jersey tops. One major difference in the jerseys is that the 1911-12 Husker jerseys did not have jersey numbers, so the number on Saturday’s throwbacks are below the stripe as well as on the back of the jersey.
Here's a look at Nebraska's throwback uniforms:

For those who love the modern uniform designs, these won't do much for you.
