The uniform looks almost identical to the Pro Combat uniform Nike made for the Frogs' season opener at Cowboys Stadium against Oregon State, featuring a black jersey, grey pants with a scale print and a sliver helmet with the "bloodline" red streaks across the top.

The new jersey is all black, removing purple accents from the first edition. Also different is the addition of purple socks.

The footwear features Nike's new Alpha Talon technology which has small, talon-like cleats that extend out of the sole of the shoe when it makes impact with the ground. The cleats are grey with purple accents and a red Nike logo.

The entire uniform was designed to be as light and durable as possible to give players more speed and flexibility on the field. Some features include chainmail woven mesh vents in the pants and jerseys, added padding sewn into the uniform and stretchable numbers.

Oregon, Florida and Boise State's new uniforms were also displayed at the event.
