In a season of firsts for Oregon (mostly bad), this week marked the first time in a long time (that I can tell) that they have worn the exact same combination as another week in the same season. While they have come close many times they usually switch up the helmet sticker to make it slightly new. But this week the Ducks reused the all-white kit that they used at USC 2 weeks ago. A much different result though!

From the light to the dark...Oregon was all white last week at USC, but comes home to face Stanford wearing all dark gray. It was not a full-blackout, ninja outfit that they tend to save for home games against USC. It seemed to continue a blackout military-trend that both ASU and Washington followed this week as well. The somber color scheme seemed to fit the mood of the team and fan-base that was facing its first losing season in a decade.
This uniform seems to finally be the realization of a photoshoot that was tweeted out in July (See my post from then)

Oregon tried to relive some past glory at the LA Coliseum by what they wore today. It's been 4 years since they played at USC. In 2012 and in 2010, they pulled out "stormtrooper" all-white which in those two years provided a real lift (or maybe the 2010 and 2012 versions of Oregon football were actually pretty good?!)
