2019-20 In Review

College football is over (kinda-with the natty still left) but all we care about is Pac-12 and it's done for the season!

This season is one of the easiest to wrap up since it was a relatively unremarkable year uniform. Even the peacocks of the group (Oregon, ASU, Arizona and Utah) were unusually sedate this year.

Trends:

Few major revamps: Even with Oregon "redesigning" again, it was a very incremental change. Washington and Oregon State also redesigned more, but neither were revolutionary. UW got simpler and OSU got a bit more complex with pattern and color.


The teams that affectively did not change their base uniforms in 2019: Cal, Stanford, WSU, and all of the South.

Muddier colors: Oregon State's new "white" uniforms were actually a creamy color which was interesting. Arizona State used a "black" that looks more like some kind of fuzzy sweatpant that has been thru the wash too many times. Oregon ditched true black and replaced it with "Nightmare Green" which in many situations looks like black or mud.

Few throwbacks, or alternate uniforms: Arizona did its usual USS Arizona tribute helmet and Dick Tomey throwback. Utah has some special helmets and several throwbacks. Cal did its annual throwback. But Oregon had no "special" uniforms for the first time in a while.

Lots of helmets in the state of Arizona. Between ASU and UA, there were many small changes to helmets. The Sun Devils felt like they had a new combo each week if you count stripes, logo sizes and facemasks. Arizona had some repeats but changed up the facemasks to give a new look most weeks.

Week 11: Nov 9, 2019

Lots of mono-white and mono-black this week. Both OSU and ASU are mono black with small touches of Veteran's Day swag.
