Nebraska will wear a new adidas alternate uniform Oct. 24 vs. Northwestern, the company and team announced Thursday morning.

Like previous Nebraska alternates, this is not a look that makes anyone think of the program's proud past – despite adidas calling the design"a tribute to history."

Whatever, if history is any indication, recruits and players will really like this design, and that's what matters.

Why so much black, you ask? It's a nod to the defense's "Blackshirt" moniker, which adidas has done previously for Nebraska (like this). The company also says it's "more than a color, it?s a mindset" in another tweet.

What do you think, Nebraska and Big Ten fans?
