Today, the Oregon Ducks unveiled their uniforms for the spring game, and they are throwing it wayyyyy back to 1916 as a nod to Oregon's first Rose Bowl team.

The Ducks will split into two teams, the "Webfoots" and "Mighty Oregon." The blue, yellow and gold uniforms are from the 1916 season when Oregon defeated Penn State 14-0 in the Rose Bowl.

One of the coolest touches on the uniform is the Pacific Coast Conference sticker on the back of the helmets. The conference existed from 1915-1959. Another cool addition is the state of Oregon flag on the top of the pants, which the jerseys match nicely with.

Keeping up with recent traditions for the spring game, the Ducks will also use the annual scrimmage to pay respect to the various branches of the military.

Admission to the game will be three cans of non-perishable food items, which will be donated to Food for Lane County.
