With Week 11 of an exciting 2013 college football season underway, it's time for another edition of Uniform Watch. 

The biggest trend this week are military-themed jerseys in honor of Veterans Day on Nov. 11. Of course, teams like Oregon and Baylor, who regularly don some of the most intriguing uniforms in college football, are up to their usual tricks in Week 11.  

Veterans Day Uniforms

Schools like Northern Illinois, Northwestern and plenty of other schools across the country are rocking camouflage and military-style uniforms to honor Veterans Day. Whether it's helmet decals, jerseys or the entire uniform as a whole, teams are anxious to show their support for the troops who defend their country's freedom. 

Under Armor, who sponsors Northwestern, is breaking out a jersey for the Wildcats that will honor the Wounded Warrior Project. 

Plenty of other schools are honoring the vets as well on Saturday and beyond. Check out some examples of helmet decals and jersey decorations throughout the country.

Meanwhile, the Oregon Ducks were not up to their usual tricks offensively in their loss to the Stanford Cardinal, but they were up to them with their uniforms. The Ducks rocked yellow helmets and pants with some sleek white jerseys against Stanford. 

Maryland, Wyoming Continue Experiments on Field

Like Oregon and Baylor, Maryland and Wyoming also wear some of the most colorful and intricate jerseys in all of college football, and Week 11 will be no different. 

Like Baylor, Maryland will go with a primarily black scheme this week, per Phil Hecken of Uni Watch. 

Hecken also reports that Wyoming, which has gone with a unique yellow and brown scheme this season, will go all-white against undefeated Fresno State.
