Last week, UConn revealed a new logo designed by Nike and said that jerseys would be revealed at a later date.

That date turned out to be Thursday, as the uniforms for all the sports were revealed at an event at the basketball arena on campus.

Courtesy of's Ken Davis, here is a look at UConn's white football uniform for 2013.


It's quite similar to last year's look. "UConn" has been added across the top of the chest and the number outline has been changed to red. Overall, a very nice look for the jersey. I'll add more photos when they're available.

Now we have a helmet look, via UConn's Twitter account, and it's certainly unique. I don't know if I like it or hate it. It's completely different from anything I've ever seen.



Here's the the blue uniform, courtesy of SNY's John Silver.


Here are players modeling both of them.
