TCU will again don special Nike uniforms

A couple of weeks ago, TCU coach Gary Patterson hinted that the Horned Frogs would break out a special uniform again this season and quite possibly in the Sept. 4 season opener against Oregon State at Cowboys Stadium.

TCU has again been selected as one of 10 programs to wear uniquely designed Nike uniforms for at least one game. In fact, both teams could be wearing the uniforms in the opener at Cowboys Stadium since the Beavers were also included the group of 10.

It's not a given either team will break out the new duds then -- although it would make the most sense with the game being televised nationally on ESPN. The dates of those games that the teams will wear the uniforms will be announced at the unveiling of the uniforms Sept. 1 in New York City. TCU twice wore a special Nike Combat uniform last year, debuting it at home against Utah and then again in the Fiesta Bowl. It's not how this season's uniform might differ from last season's.

The other eight schools that will wear the uniforms are: Alabama, Boise State, Florida, Miami (Fla.), Ohio State, Oregon State, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech and West Virginia.
