The latest "disruption moment" in the history of Oregon football uniforms will celebrate pan-Polynesian culture when the Ducks host UCLA in Autzen Stadium on Saturday.
The UO football team will wear uniforms honoring elements of Polynesian culture including family, unity and a voyager spirit. The "Ohana" gear was designed through a collaboration involving Nike – including former UO wide receiver Daryle Hawkins, now an apparel graphic designer there – and Hawaiian label Sig Zane Designs.
Black is the base color for the line, in a nod to the volcanic rock that formed the Pacific islands. The line also incorporates "Action Green," representing the resilient vegetation that grows among the volcanic rock.
