The University of Alabama has one of the most storied programs in college football and their uniform is a classic. But that won’t stop Nike from trying to leave its mark on the BCS championship game by giving the Crimson Tide a uniform makeover.It will be interesting to see how these uniforms are received by Alabama fans. They do have a nice modern look while still maintaining the traditional elements that we have come to recognise as Alabama football. Then again, for some, any change is never good.

Nike is calling the Pro Combat Hypercool uniform their 'most innovative uniform system'

Nike will not make the helmets, but it appears that they will also be wearing a shinier version of their classic crimson helmet

Here is how the new set compares to the current uniform. Notice the colours appear to be more consistent (helmet vs numbers)

The uniform just feels crisper with more defined boundaries and edges

The red-white-red stripe pattern on the pants remains the same

It is still one of the simplest uniforms in sports

And of course, they will have their own logo gloves, a staple among college football teams

It is a nice upgrade, but will Bama fans embrace them?
