The Wolf Pack has Battle Born uniforms for men's and women's basketball, baseball, softball and volleyball as well as Battle Born swimming caps, but it has not created full Battle Born football uniforms. Nevada did wear its special Battle Born helmets for last weekend's UNLV game, but it went with white tops and silver pants for its uniform. That's where Nevada Sports Net's unofficial designer, UNR student Micah Soga, stepped in.
Soga, who gave us some silver, blue and black Wolf Pack mockup uniforms earlier this season, is back with a Battle Born-themed football jersey. Soga designed two Battle Born football jerseys last season, but he has a new design with the Wolf Pack's move from Nike to Adidas. That Adidas uniform is modeled below by a fake Toa Taua.
The lighter blue jives with the Battle Born uniforms Wolf Pack basketball has worn and the yellow Adidas and Mountain West logos are an homage to the color on the state flag. The logo on the left hip comes directly from the flag, with color alterations, the star below the scroll being yellow rather than silver, as it is on the flag. The green sagebrush flowers also are present on the logo.
Nevada debuted its new Adidas uniforms this season to a mild response. Fans seemed fine with them but not wowed. That's understandable given the short time frame Adidas had to outfit the Wolf Pack following the apparel change in May. Nevada also used three helmets this season, its regular blue as well as a silver Nevada Day helmet and the black Battle Born ones used last weekend. These Battle Born mockup uniforms could go well with those black Battle Born helmets.
The Wolf Pack's series of Battle Born uniforms are the most popular sets Nevada has, so when (or if) Wolf Pack football creates full Battle Born kits, they have a high standard to live up to. What are our thoughts on these?
