The Arizona Wildcats will wear the new Nike Hyper Elite Platinum uniforms for its Feb. 25 game against UCLA, the final home game of the season.
Arizona is one of nine teams wearing the special unis this season, Nike announced Wednesday morning. Like the Cats, the other eight programs have won national championships wearing Nike gear.
They are Baylor (women’s), Duke, Florida, Kentucky, Syracuse, Connecticut (men’s and women’s) and North Carolina.
The teams will wear the Platinum edition uniforms in select games.
(I don’t much care about uniforms and styles and logos and all that, but my first impression on these: Don’t like the “Zona” across the front. “Arizona” will do just fine. I love the back, though.)
