There are too many new uniforms across the college football landscape to count.
Still, NFL.com recently accepted the daunting task of ranking the best of the best new threads.
And, of importance to Big Ten fans, the conference earned the ranking's No. 1 spot, which went to Michigan State's Mach Speed design.
It is not know when the Spartans will debut this slick new design, however NFL.com suggests it should be in the home opener vs. reigning national runner-up Oregon on Sept. 12 at Spartan Stadium.
Not a bad idea. For what it's worth, Michigan State has gone with it's all-green uniform in big-time home games the last couple of seasons.
Here's what NFL.com says about the Spartans' new alternate:
"These might be the first college football inspired by ancient warfare. The spectacular all-new alternate uniform — featuring a bronze helmet, bronze sleeve caps and other subtle bronze highlights — was inspired by one of the most feared tactical formations in human history, the Greek phalanx, according to PR materials. The uniform is intended to visually represent the phalanx when the team stands side-by-side on the field. Let the Spartans' bronze age commence!"
