Week 10: November 4, 2017

It was the Duck's annual rivalry game against the UW Huskies. The pulled out their chrome helmets again and went white out below. Another week with mix/match elements from earlier outfits.

Week 8: Oct. 21, 2017

Back to a tried and true white/green combo, but with a little twist. This week felt like a mashup of weeks 2, 3, and 4. The chrome helmets were trotted out for the 3rd time this season, making them the most used helmet this year. But their justification is that the VERY first time chrome helmets like these were worn was the 2012 Rose Bowl win vs. Wisconsin.

They were hoping to rekindle some of the magic from that game, but alas they did not.

Week 6: Oct. 7, 2017

Oregon continued its retread of combos that they started last year. This week they went mono-highlighter with a reuse of their "lightning" yellow jersey from week 2 and 9 of 2016. This time instead of toning it down with black, they went all-yellow, against a mono-white WSU.

Week 1: Sept. 2, 2017

In Willie Taggart's debut, the Ducks scored 77 points, which is the most since 1916. They also scored points in the uniform world too. Using parts from their well-stocked-closet, they combined a fan-favorite, and very bright apple green and lemon yellow confection. Oddly enough, they have not worn yellow/green/yellow since the 2015 Civil War game! And going back, this combo most resembles the Kenny Wheaton UW game throwbacks from 2014.

The yellow helmet was never used last year!, and in looking back 5 years, I cannot find a green O on yellow helmet! That combo is probably the most iconic going back to the old interlocking UO on yellow helmets.
The green jersey is from game 4 last year where they imitated The Duck mascot.
The yellow pants are from game 2 last year.

All around a good look! Next week they will be sporting all white/silver/yellow for Nebraska, which often has mixed results.

Getting ready for 2017!

It's been a pretty bleak winter for Duck Fans and the uniform front has been REAL quiet, but you get little glimpses from all over the Pac-12 at what the Ducks will be hatching into this season.

SBNation did a nice little roundup today with many Pac-12 related links and discussion about the trend towards simplicity.

While UCLA is being toughed as a poster child for simple, they did pull a page out of Oregon;s uniform playbook and build a Spark presentation all about it:
