UNIFORMS: 'Giant Killers' for Civil War

OREGON STATE FOOTBALL was center stage Wednesday morning in Manhattan as the Beavers were one of 10 collegiate football teams to have their Nike Pro Combat uniforms unveiled. Here are the photos.

The Beavers, the only team to participate from the Pacific-10 Conference, will wear their Pro Combat uniform on Dec. 4 in the Civil War against Oregon.

The jersey is an ode to the Oregon State "Giant Killers" team from 1967. As described by Nike, the orange, called Solar Orange, is the "predominant motif, seen on the helmet, base layer sleeves, pants and socks.

"To match the archival dirtied white look of '67, the pant color is Sail instead of stark white. An iconic ‘O' mark is used on the front left hip of the pant, while ‘OSU' forms on the gloves when the palms face outward.

"Corresponding footwear in Solar Orange and Black completes the commanding (look)."
