Thanks to Adidas, the Nebraska Cornhuskers are celebrating their 125th year of football in style.
Nebraska will be wearing new Red Rising TECHFIT uniforms for its Sept. 27 game against Illinois. The jerseys include ultra-light black and silver numbers, and the jerseys and pants use black metallic stripes.
The Adidas uniform uses TECHFIT Shockweb technology, which makes players tougher to tackle because it clings to the body.
It's a pretty drastic new look for Nebraska.
Cornhuskers coach Bo Pelini got in on the fun of unveiling the uniforms:

The players had to be pretty pumped up to see their coach in the new gear.
