Oregon Set To Wear White At Home vs. Nebraska

New, 16 comments

This means the Huskers may wear red on the road for the first time in over 40 years.

The Oregon Ducks are going to wear white at home this year. And it’s going to be against Nebraska.

It’s a neat initiative, and one Oregon believes in. But, this brings up an interesting quandary. In that, Nebraska will be, in all likelihood, wearing red on the road.

In a quick check, it appears the last time the Huskers wore red as a road team in a non-neutral site game was in 1976. That year, they wore red in Baton Rouge as they tied LSU 6-6.

Of course, the Nebraska AD would have to confirm it, but that would be interesting that Oregon would go full white and silver for their game. It would be different than what the Ducks wore last year when they played in Lincoln.

Would that mean the dreaded red jersey and red pants make it on the road? I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
