The 30 Greatest Oregon Football Uniform Rankings

Ducks Football 560x319In 1964, Phil Knight and Bill Bowerman teamed up to form a company called Blue Ribbon Sports and their purpose was to sell track shoes as a distributor for Japanese shoe maker Onitsuka Tiger (ASICS). That company later became known simply as Nike.

Phil Knight was a middle-distance runner at the University of Oregon, where he graduated with a journalism degree. His coach at the time was Bowerman and the two men leveraged that great relationship to form the biggest sports apparel, equipment, and footwear company in the world. Both men love their alma mater and it shows every Saturday when the Oregon Ducks football team walks onto the field.

Oregon Ducks 560x184Since 1996, the duo of Nike and Oregon athletics paired up and started creating an entirely new way to watch sports. With the unlimited funding of Nike backing the athletics programs, Oregon began unveiling new uniforms almost every single game. Before any other school even heard of alternate uniforms, Oregon was doing it. They started a trend that has taken over the sport and in some ways, become a distraction. How many uniforms can one team design in a single season?

We spent about two weeks going over all the combinations and designs that they have used since 1989 and found the best 35. Enjoy.

(Note: For any of the uniforms they only wore once, we will list the team they played against, for that one game, next to their ranking.)
