Wanting to give its teams an edge over the competition, Under Armour has come up with a uniform that should make football players tougher to bring down.

Under Armour's new Armourgrid technology was used in making uniforms for Auburn, Notre Dame, Cincinnati, Maryland and Utah this coming season. If the technology lives up to the hype, it could be a literal game-changer.

According to a news release the Cincinnati Bearcats put out Monday, the Armourgrid was designed to make players "ungrabbable."

Advantage, Under Armour teams.

Under Armour, Nike, Adidas and other competitors have spent recent years trying to come up with a way to make uniforms lighter and tougher for opponents to grab. Now, we wait to see if the latest technology will give these five particular teams an edge.

Here's a look at the uniforms Under Armour designed for the Bearcats, who switched from Adidas earlier this year:
