Rutgers has unveiled their new football uniforms for the 2012 season.When talking about the uniforms, athletic director Tim Pernetti said that the school wanted to honour their mascot saying that “Scarlett Knights” is “not just a mascot,” and that the school, in conjunction with Nike, wanted to “tell a story” with the uniforms.
