This year UCLA is going to be playing a special Friday night game against Washington at the Rose Bowl (on November 15). If the Bruins play up to expectations this year the game should have massive ramifications on appearances in the Pac-12 championship game (and of course the Rose Bowl).
So makes sense for Coach Mora to pursue every opportunity to get our guys fired up and have a mental edge. Well here is info on the special unis our boys are going to be in that night:
UCLA's new adidas TECHFIT L.A. Midnight uniform is black with blue and gold shoulder stripes and player numbers. The jersey font incorporates a stripe detail inspired by UCLA's traditional shoulder stripes. The Bruins' helmet is black with the UCLA logo in gold metallic, a consistent color throughout the uniforms. UCLA's adizero 5-Star gloves and adidas TECHFIT base layer feature a landscape reminiscent of the Los Angeles skyline at night, and the Bruins will wear adidas Team Speed Vertical socks and Crazyquick Mid cleats.
The new uniform includes adidas TECHFIT ShockWeb technology, designed to keep players fast, cool and mobile onfield. adidas ShockWeb features engineered body mapping, which maximizes compression zones across the chest and sides, in a lightweight knit structure that provides a tight fit with enhanced range of motion. Integrated CLIMACOOL mesh zones create airflow to keep players cool in every temperature.
I know the traditionalists will hate this. But except for the stripe issue, I am digging how this looks.
