SEC uniform rule.
Just just like the groups that put on them, the jersey and helmet combos dominate faculty football as essentially the most iconic seems to be, particularly if you pair two squads sporting them without delay.
With respect to different traditional unis worn by Ohio State, USC, Texas and Notre Dame, the Southeastern Conference guidelines the roost, and they give the impression of being good doing it. Maybe the uniforms imply extra, too.
Here’s how we rank all 14 groups’ uniforms, specializing in their common jersey and helmet combos, except in any other case famous.
14. South Carolina
Too busy! White, garnet and black all look nice on their very own or in case you pair simply two collectively. But the trio, or at the least the way in which USC makes use of them, creates an off-putting mixture that has but to discover a rhythm on the football subject. Maybe it is the feathery emblem that includes the Gamecock, which once more, seems to be nice by itself. Listen, it is not you, it is us.
13. Mississippi State
Some folks love maroon. You know, like Mississippi State followers. There’s nothing improper with the Bulldogs’ uniform, apart from possibly the smaller font above the numbers on the chest plate. We choose the massive block lettering studying “MISS. STATE” of the ’90s Jackie Sherrill period, together with the stacked MSU emblem on the edges of the helmet.
If the Wildcats jersey stayed all-royal blue, it may appear too plain for a program trying to stand out, however we stay on the fence in regards to the checkered shoulder pads. Kentucky greats like Josh Allen and Benny Snell made it look good with their on-field heroics, however we won’t go any increased right here.
Despite two convention title recreation appearances since becoming a member of the SEC in 2012, Missouri’s football id nonetheless wants work, beginning with the previous gold and black. They’ve had as many uniform variations as any squad down South, swapping helmet designs utilizing chrome, matte black and extra, going all white, tinkering with the brand designs. The oval tiger on the facet of the helmet is a slick design, however we really dig the extra conventional “Block M” look featured at varied factors final season.
10. Texas A&M
More maroon, the Aggies’ emblem on the edges of the helmets give them the sting over the Bulldogs. The Texas state emblem on the hip might go a measurement down, however A&M appear to be they belong within the SEC, particularly once they’re rocking at Kyle Field. The conventional maroon helmets and jerseys convey the custom, however we would not thoughts a shift again to the white helmets of the Johnny Football days, when the Aggies made their greatest splash of all.
Vandy received a glow-up in 2021. Either the white jersey with black trim and numbers and gold lettering, or the black with gold trim and lettering and white numbers, the jerseys look good paired with each white and gold pants. They scrapped the chain design and the star “V” on the helmets in favor of gold headwear with black and white stripes and a slick, giant black “V” on the facet. Smart look!
Hard-nosed simplicity is ideal for Sam Pittman’s scrappy membership. The Razorbacks pull off the block lettering above the entrance chest numbers higher than most anybody within the nation, maybe apart from Oklahoma, and their emblem is likely one of the extra underrated within the SEC, trying nice on the facet of a cardinal helmet.
7. Ole Miss
Points deducted for not sticking with the powder blue look all season lengthy. Tradition is custom, however that is one the fan base loves, as evidenced by the ocean of powder blue within the stands or tailgate website wherever a recreation (or social gathering) could also be. The royal blue helmets atop the intense purple uniforms and white pants undoubtedly pops, but when they went all powder, they’d climb the charts.
One man mentioned, “It’s that puke, inside-of-a-pumpkin orange.” To every his or her personal. Most folks do not contemplate orange essentially the most flattering shade in any clothes mixture, however you need to work with what you’ve got received. And the Tennessee Volunteers’ vibrant, nearly neon orange stays synonymous with SEC football, even when a few a long time have handed since they competed nationally. They dominated as soon as, and Josh Heupel seems to be to steer them again to prominence. The Vols even look good in all-black alternates, once they tone down the orange, though not the black jerseys on orange pants like they did for that one Halloween recreation in 2009.
The “Gators” emblem throughout the orange helmet on high of the royal blue uni and white pants is likely one of the all-time traditional combos that requires little to no variation. And but. While Florida has but to put on something downright ugly, why would you ever deviate from perfection? I really imagine when Tim Tebow led the staff out of the tunnel in these all-whites for the 2009 SEC title recreation, it simply made Bama need to pummel them much more. Sometimes, change is nice. Sometimes, it…is not.
The defending nationwide champions look nice in purple or white, both an ideal combo with the silver pants topped with the unmistakable “G” emblem on the helmets. Confession: The black jerseys, infamously stomped when Alabama visited Athens in 2008, really look nice. In truth, that Bama blowout marks their solely loss sporting them, which might be why they’ve since revived them.
The Tigers’ look has seen few modifications, and why would they? Nobody performs with extra confidence, notably throughout Iron Bowls, than Auburn within the burnt orange and navy blue. Face masks shade could differ between orange, navy and white, with out a lot of a consensus on which to maintain completely. And truthfully, together with their arch-rival and the Texas Longhorns, Auburn’s street whites rank among the many greatest within the nation.
All that purple and gold on the inexperienced gridiron seems to be like a Mardi Gras social gathering inside Tiger Stadium. A perennial powerhouse in faculty football, LSU stole the highlight throughout an immaculate championship run throughout which it appeared their white jerseys went comparatively unscathed as they separated themselves from the remainder of the league. Minor level deduction for insisting on sporting the identical jersey whereas dwelling or away, apart from particular events once they escape these ghastly purple jerseys. They know what works for them. And plus, no two uniforms look higher collectively on a football subject than LSU’s and our subsequent choose…
Call us biased. Some see the simplicity of the crimson and white uniforms as plain and boring. We see custom and championship pedigree, a glance that does not simply scream faculty football, it simply does is. And Crimson Tide gameday seems to be have seen a couple of modifications all through the years, however not many. Crimson jerseys, white numbers, white pants with two crimson stripes down the leg, and the Crimson helmets with white numbers on the edges and white stripe down the center. “[Nick] Saban had it ingrained in us that it wasn’t in regards to the uniforms, it is about your play,” former Tide long-snapper Carson Tinker advised AL.com. “He would not allow us to get distracted by something, which is I believe one more reason the uniforms have not modified.” Here’s hoping they by no means do.
