Oklahoma to debut new uniforms on Nov. 21: The Sooners will be wearing specially designed, state-of-the-art Nike uniforms called Nike Pro Combat, which the company calls "football's lightest system of dress ever created." OU is one of 10 schools that's been nationally selected to provide a sneak peak of the new uniform before they are officially introduced in 2010. One OU player said the Sooners will wear white helmets with gray facemasks as part of a throwback look. (The Oklahoman)

AD Endroses Pro Combat: In following commerical Adrian Peterson, Minnesota Viking & former Oklahoma running back, promotes Nike's Pro Combat uniform.



From Nike:
The Nike Pro Combat uniform is 37 percent lighter than current designs (23.7 ounces vs. 37.4 ounces). Nike utilized a four-way stretch twill that does not hold sweat or water and as a result, the new uniforms are 46 percent lighter than the current designs when wet. Overall, the Nike Pro Combat uniform, when wet, is still lighter than the current design when completely dry.
