An old look for a new conference: Syracuse gets new uniforms for Boston College game

Nike released seven new Hyper Elite Dominance uniforms Thursday, including a throwback Syracuse uniform.

Syracuse may have joined the ACC this year, but they'll be wearing uniforms from the early Big East years.

Nike released seven new uniforms as part of the company's Hyper Elite Dominance series in a press release Thursday. Syracuse joins Michigan State, Kentucky, Ohio State, Duke, Oregon and North Carolina as the only teams to don these uniforms this season.

The uniforms "celebrates the past and present of seven outstanding programs" and all seven uniforms "honor each school's winning tradition with special logos, scripts and colors mined from each program’s past," according to the press release.

SU will wear its uniform against Boston College Feb. 19 in the Carrier Dome, and the uniforms will be available for fans in March, according to the release.

The top features designs similar something Sherman Douglas wore in the late 1980s, with a cursive Syracuse script. The shorts, on the other hand, are a hybrid mix between the '80s and '90s, especially the switch away from a navy blue to a shinier royal blue.
