Tom Dienhart: Nebraska. I just like the classic simplicity of the “N” helmet, which is iconic. Too conservative for you? Well, the school has introduced some alternate looks to spice things up. Still, the iconic basic red jersey and white pants are difficult to top.

Sean Merriman: Northwestern. The Big Ten’s most underrated team this season also has the most underrated uniform, in my opinion. I am a big fan of the purple-black combination. Check out the uniform combination the Wildcats wore vs. Ohio State last season. Those are very sharp, and those all-black helmets with the silver Wildcat logo are my personal favorite. Under Armour gets an A+ in my book for these uniform designs.

Brent Yarina: Minnesota. This is the Big Ten’s most underrated uniform. While the team may have a few too many combinations for the old-school fan, it’s hard to argue that Nike didn’t get it right with this 2012 redesign. My personal favorites? The all-white road and the this home alternate. Get rid of the thick collar design, a Nike staple, and this design is right up with Michigan and Penn State.
