Arizona fans finally know what the Wildcats will look like next season.
Well, from a fashion standpoint, at least.
The UA football program unveiled its new uniforms and a 1-minute video clip (see above) of a look on Monday afternoon.
Nike, the school's longtime apparel and footwear provider, designed the uniforms with input from Arizona.
Among the most prominent changes was the gradient blend of cardinal, Navy and white used on the numbers of the jersey tops.
The NCAA released a new set of rules in early March, including one stating that numbers must be "one solid color." By then, however, the program had already ordered its jerseys.
Arizona officials told GOAZCATS.com that the program has received a waiver from the NCAA to use the uniforms in 2013. As for any subsequent seasons, that is yet to be determined.
Other changes include the addition of the gradient on the sleeves, as well.
The Wildcats also decided to continue using both copper and red helmets. The copper design made its debut last season, marking the program's tribute to the state's copper industry.
The new uniforms will be on display in Yuma on May 9, Sierra Vista on May 17 and Pinetop on May 23 in a series of meet-and-greet stops on the Arizona Road Tour.
