Southern Miss unveils new football uniforms

The Southern Miss football team unveiled its new uniforms the 2015 season on Saturday for fans in Hattiesburg.

Many members of the USM faithful complained about the look the Golden Eagles had the last couple of seasons with uniforms provided through a deal with Russell Athletics.

Russell continues to provide the uniforms, which have a much more clean, modern look this season.

The new helmet will no longer feature a white outline around the Southern Miss logo.

USM describes the home uniforms as a "back in black design." The pants are entirely black, except for the Russell logo, while the jersey has the text “Southern Miss” in gold across the chest. The outline of the numerals are also in gold as well as the sleeve piping, while the numerals and short sleeves are adorned in stealth gray. 

The road uniforms will feature black pants with a white jersey. The numerals and “Southern Miss” text across the chest are both in black with gold outlines on the numerals on both the front and back of the jersey as well as on the numbered sleeves. The jersey also has black on each shirt sleeve with gold piping.

USM athletic director Bill McGillis headed up the effort for the new uniforms.
