Nike unveils CFP teams' uniforms

Nike unveiled the uniforms for all four College Football Playoff teams Tuesday morning.

Each of the uniforms for Alabama, Oregon, Florida State and Ohio State features a diamond-colored swoosh on the front, which Nike says symbolizes the teams' goal: a diamond championship ring.

As the home team, Oregon will wear green-based uniforms with a green stain finished helmet. As the away team, the Ducks will wear white and gray uniforms and white helmets. The uniform pants have the words "Fighting Ducks" down the side.

Alabama and Florida State will wear their traditional crimson-and-white and garnet-and-gold home uniforms, respectively. Ohio State's home scarlet jersey features black numbers on the shoulders.

Each pair of knit cleats that will be used by all four teams were made using recycled material equal to five plastic bottles, the company said.

It's not a surprise that Nike sponsors all four title contenders; a Nike-sponsored team won 14 of the 16 BCS titles.

Of the teams in contention, Nike's Florida State deal this year is worth the most at $4.4 million in cash and gear, followed by Ohio State ($4.2 million), Alabama ($3.6 million) and Oregon ($3 million).

No. 1 Alabama will face No. 4 Ohio State in the Allstate Sugar Bowl, and No. 2 Oregon will take on No. 3 Florida State in the Rose Bowl presented by Northwestern Mutual. Both games will be played on New Year's Day.

The semifinal winners will meet in the College Football Playoff National Championship presented by AT&T on Jan. 12 in Arlington, Texas. The College Football Playoff replaced the BCS this season.
