Nebraska to wear all-red uniforms against Illinois

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska and Adidas have announced that the Cornhuskers will wear all-red uniforms for their game against Illinois on Sept. 27.

The "Red Rising" uniforms unveiled Friday feature black metallic stripes on the jersey and pants, black and silver metallic numbers and a large "N'' on the chest.

The uniform uses what's called "Techfit Shockweb" technology, which makes it fit tighter and, according to Adidas, makes players more difficult to tackle.

Last year the Huskers wore all-black uniforms for their home game against UCLA.
