If you’re in tune with the subtle hat-tipping that goes on in the social media world, you might have seen this one coming. The Oregon Ducks released their uniform combination for the marquee matchup against the UCLA Bruins on Thursday evening, unveiling a different look than what we’ve seen before.
Oregon’s road combination in front of a College Gameday audience will include a ‘eggshell’ look that is white and black speckled, almost looking like a cookies and cream ice cream.
For anyone who was paying attention to the Ducks on Twitter this week, the speckled theme is no surprise. New Oregon merchandise was released recently with this pattern on the jersey, and as 247 Sports’ Jared Mack pointed out on Wednesday, the Oregon Ducks’ official Twitter account changed their main image to an Oregon ‘O’ with the same pattern.
Looks like Oregon’s football account changed their logo to white with speckles… could that be a hint at the jerseys? Similar to what you can find on Nike? pic.twitter.com/aXLTPEpoJL

Coincidence? Not for those who know where to look.
Regardless of if you were ready to the release or not, Oregon will once again be donning some state-of-the-art uniforms against UCLA on Saturday, with a national ESPN audience tuning in. After impressing with the all-black ensemble against Cal a week ago, we can hope that their play holds up to the level of swagger on the field.
