Tennessee’s uniform is lead with “VOLS” on the chest and a state outsole above the players names on the back. The Vols’ numbers feature a tonal orange checkerboard pattern inspired by Tennessee’s famous endzone. The same pattern appears on the TECHFIT baselayer biceps.

The TECHFIT uniforms feature ShockWeb technology, designed to keep players fast, cool and mobile on-field.

Additionally, players will wear tonal orange Team Speed socks with Crazyquick and adizero 5-Star 2.0 cleats.

Cornhuskers players will wear the adidas Team Speed Vertical socks and Crazyquick Mid cleats.

Texas A&M and Mississippi State Battle in “Snow Bowl” adidas TECHFIT Uniforms

Texas A&M vs. Mississippi State in adidas Snow Bowl TECHFIT Uniforms (1)

words // Brandon Richard

This past Saturday, the Texas A&M Aggies and Mississippi State Bulldogs faced each other in a rare matchup, clashing for the first time since their classic meeting in the 2000 Independence Bowl. Dubbed the “Snow Bowl,” that game was played in the middle of a massive snowstorm that dumped on Shreveport from whistle to whistle. The viewing audience could barely get a grasp on the action, as the flurries resembled static on television screens. Described as one of the most memorable bowl games of all-time, Mississippi State walked way with a slim 43-41 overtime victory.

For this year’s game between the same two teams, adidas supplied both schools with special “Snow Bowl” TECHFIT uniforms, paying tribute to their epic showdown 12 years ago.

Texas A&M wore a uniform that wasn’t maroon or white-based for the first time since the 1920s. The Aggies debuted an all-black version of their Lone Star TECHFIT uniform, trimmed with traditional maroon. Their black helmet featured the Lone Star logo and a fade to metallic maroon on the back. The Lone Star logo also appears on the back of the jersey, the base layer and adizero Smoke gloves.

Mississippi State’s “Snow Bowl” uniform is inspired by the famous 2000 snow-filled game versus Texas A&M. The jersey and pants are all-white with silver trim and metallic silver numbers. There’s a matte white finish on the helmet with a large silver metallic bulldog graphic, matching facemask and large Mississippi State logo on the back. Rounding out the all-white look are adizero Smoke gloves, Team Speed vertical socks and adizero Smoke cleats.

Twelve years later, the result was a bit different. Behind a rushing attack that outgained Mississippi State 361 to 98 and found the endzone five times, Texas A&M dominated Saturday’s game by a score of 38-13.

Check out a few game shots and a take a closer look at the “Snow Bowl” tribute uniforms below.
