Littyville is continuing to grow, and its residents have new jerseys to wear.
Illinois Football released new uniform designs Friday morning in a video on Twitter.
The new uniforms will begin to be worn this upcoming 2018 season.
According to FightingIllini.com, the new uniforms were revealed at a 7:30 a.m. meeting Friday during one of Illinois’ final spring practices.
The uniforms include a white, orange and blue, as well as a new grey “Galloping Ghost” design. They are inspired by Dick Butkus era jerseys of the 1960s and have columns to represent the columns at Memorial Stadium.
And there are no more metallic matte finished helmets.
This is Illinois’ second set of football jerseys since the rebrand in 2014.
Here is some of the reaction from the Twittersphere on the new unis.
