FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas has officially unveiled new football uniforms for the 2012 season.

Officials said Wednesday the new Nike uniforms incorporate the latest in performance innovation and design while paying tribute to the Razorbacks mascot and identity.

The team kept a cardinal uniform and helmet as well as a white version of both. Officials say a new gray color was introduced as an alternate.

Officials say the new uniform is made of a four-way stretch nylon that sheds moisture and helps keep players cooler so they don't dehydrate as quickly. Additional padding without the bulk will provide low-profile impact protection specifically throughout the crucial "hit zone" around the hip area.

Officials say the shoulders also are accented with jagged metallic Razorback lines, which reflect the hairline along the mascot's back.
