Conference USA is not messing around this spring and summer when it comes to new college football uniforms.
First Rice wowed us with these incredible new logos, and now it looks like Western Kentucky will have new athletic-wide uniforms and football helmets to look forward to later this summer courtesy of a new 5-year deal with Nike.

The Hilltoppers have shown incredible improvement both on the gridiron and in the apparel department. The helmets are quite possibly not only the most improved in college football, but also featured one of the best chrome domes in the sport.
All of this comes on the heels of an impressive 2016 Boca Raton Bowl thrashing of Memphis en route to an 11-3 season.
Indeed, it is a glorious time to be a fan of WKU sports, and we can't wait to see the new Nike threads later this year.
April 25, 2017 BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — WKU Athletics has reached an agreement with Nike to serve as the department’s official apparel provider beginning on July 1, 2017, Director of Athletics Todd Stewart announced today. Beginning with the 2017-18 season, Nike will be the official apparel and shoe provider for each of WKU’s 16 athletic teams.
“All of our sport programs and student-athletes will benefit from the relationship with Nike,” Stewart said. “We are very excited to partner with the leading and most recognizable brand in athletics.”
A full uniform reveal will occur this summer.
