Rose Bowl 2012: Oregon Ducks, Nike and Badgers

1.2.12 2.10pm pacific time


The new Nike Pro Combat gear will be featured in the 2012 Rose Bowl with the Oregon Ducks rocking all green unis. Without going into too much detail, let's just say words like "thermoregulation", "lightweight ultra-breathable", "armored", and "LiquidMetal" mean they will be bad ass. More descriptively, the re-designed numbers have an iridescent shine you might find when looking at a mallard’s feathers in the sunlight. The numbers are larger and change colors as the players move.

Courtesy NikeThe helmets feature chrome-like wings and use LiquidMetal for a mirrored black finish along with the iconic Oregon "O" and "Ducks" in the same silverish chrome. 

The January 2, 2012 "Granddaddy of Them All" Rose Bowl is not just about the 5th ranked Oregon Ducks however. The 10th ranked Wisconsin Badgers are also making the trip to Pasadena and their power offense is the yin to the Ducks yang. Where Oregon beats you with speed and athleticism, the Badgers goal is to run you over.

Both teams average about 45 points per game, which could lead to a 90 point Rose Bowl. Insane. Las Vegas currently has the Over/Under at 72 points, which seems quite low. Keep in mind though, Oregon has not looked great in it's last few bowl games. I see a high scoring game, yet think it will be something more like 35-30. Get your combat gear on. This is going to be fun.
