The 2010 Nike Pro Combat uniforms were unveiled yesterday for the ten participating college football programs which includes the University of Florida. It was announced that the Gators will don the non-traditional uniforms for their rivalry game against Georgia on October 30th.
According to a Nike press release, the uniform was inspired by an alligator-skin motif, which includes a gator-skin helmet. The uniforms are 37 percent lighter than the current uniforms and are designed for greater mobility and speed while not compromising protection. Last year the Gators also participated in the Nike program, and wore redesigned uniforms against Florida State in the season finale.
