Oregon football is bringing back the stormtrooper look against USC

I know earlier this year, I criticized how out of hand Oregon’s uniforms had gotten this year. It has seemed to settle down a bit, but this week, we finally have a uniform that is 100% perfection.

Today against USC, the Ducks will bring back the stormtrooper look that was so popular back in 2012, there was a whole damn marketing campaign around it. You all remember that game, right? Kenjon Barner ran for 321 yards and five touchdowns as No. 4 Oregon knocked off No. 17 USC in the Coliseum.

Now, four years and two days after that magnificent performance, the Ducks are bringing back the stormtrooper look when they return to Los Angeles to take on the Trojans.

The all white everything has always been my favorite road look. It’s clean (until you get tackled onto the grass), it’s simple, and it brings back fond memories of Kenjon Barner making the USC defense his plaything.
