It’s time to continue our Underdog Uniform March Madness, this time with the C-USA region! Again, remember that seeds are based off last year’s conference records, so if your team is a lesser seed, that doesn’t mean we don’t like your uniforms. And remember, it’s up to YOU to decide who wins!

We’ll start with Round 1. The bracket and the Round 1 poll are below. Yes, the bracket looks funny, but with 13 teams we had to adjust. Below are pictures and descriptions of the uniforms for your reference.

North Texas

Colors: Green, White

Brand: Nike

Summary: The Mean Green typically wear, you guessed it, green. They’ve also shown black pants to go along with green jerseys. Their white road jerseys have green shoulders. They have a couple of helmet options, including the white ones shown here. They also have chrome, green, and black.

Colors: Green, White

Brand: Nike

Summary: Although their colors are officially green and white, the 49ers like to wear gold pants. They also have an all green look with green helmets, jerseys, and pants. On the road they can wear all white or white-white-gold (white helmet, white jersey, gold pants).

#4 UTSA Roadrunners vs #13 Rice Owls

NCAA Football: New Mexico Bowl-New Mexico at Texas-San Antonio Ivan Pierre Aguirre-USA TODAY Sports


Colors: Blue, Orange, White

Brand: Adidas

Summary: The Roadrunners like to wear navy blue jerseys and helmets with orange trim, but they also have orange jerseys they can break out occasionally. They like to invert their normal colors on the road and go with a white-white-blue look. Should also be noted they used an all black uniform with orange trim around Halloween this year. Their helmets typically show the Texas outline with San Antonio highlighted, but occasionally use the Roadrunner emblem.

Colors: Blue, Gray

Brand: Adidas

Summary: The Owls keep it simple. They typically wear all navy at home and just trade out the jersey for a white one on the road. They can also wear white pants with the home colors. Their helmets stay navy, but they have been known to trade the white Rice R for a pink one or a US flag version.

#5 Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders vs #12 Florida Atlantic Owls

Middle Tennessee

Colors: Blue, White

Summary: Another shocker here, but the Blue Raiders like to wear blue. They like to wear white-blue-white at home and then invert those colors on the road, but they can replace the white pants and helmets with grey. They have also worn all black at home.

NCAA Football: Marshall at Florida Atlantic Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Florida Atlantic

Colors: Blue, Red

Brand: Adidas

Summary: Florida Atlantic has a variety of looks. At home they typically wear blue helmets with blue jerseys and a variety of pants, but they’ve also worn red and grey jerseys on occasion, with black and red helmets, respectively. They like to go all-white on the road. Their helmets can bear both the Owl emblem as well as an outline of Florida.

#7 FIU Panthers vs #10 UTEP Miners
