The No. 23 Badgers drew inspiration from past Wisconsin uniforms: A red and white checkerboard pattern adorns the collar and sleeves -- a trademark of the late 1970s when Bill Cofield was head coach. Cofield was the first Black men's basketball coach in Big Ten conference history.

And perhaps the most eye-catching part of the new fit is the white-filled, red-outlined "UW" across the chest, the first time that has been branded on a jersey. The final touch: A Badger logo placed in front of a W, above the players' number on the back of the jersey.
The Badgers picked a great Saturday to debut these new threads, as it is their home opener and "Stripe Out" game.
