Clemson will be one of eleven elite football programs to debut the Nike Pro Combat uniform this month before they are officially introduced to the broader market at the start of the 2010 season.

Clemson is joined by the University of Florida, Florida State University, Louisiana State University, the University of Miami, Virginia Tech, the University of Missouri, The Ohio State University, the University of Oklahoma, The University of Texas and TCU as the schools debuting the Nike Pro Combat uniform this month.

Nike designed the Nike Pro Combat uniform to address the evolution of the game: today's players are stronger and faster and the collisions are more violent and explosive than ever before. Nike also worked with coaches and administrators at Clemson to bring inspiration to the Nike Pro Combat uniforms that the Tigers will wear on November 28th.

According to Clemson University officials, the game pants will be used on a one game basis only. The team will return to their traditional game pants after November 28. Top Stories
