Nike Unveils All-Black Pro Combat Hokie Uniforms

Nike held a press conference this morning in New York to unveil the 2010 Nike
Pro Combat uniforms, and the latest worst-kept secret in Virginia Tech football
was revealed: the Hokies will sport all-black uniforms Monday night when they
kick off at FedExField against the Boise State Broncos.

Here’s an image, courtesy of, of Virginia Tech’s uniforms:

Ten schools will wear this year’s edition of the Nike Pro Combat uniforms
throughout the season, including Virginia Tech’s opening-weekend opponent, Boise
State. BSU’s uniforms are less of a departure from the norm than Virginia Tech’s
and can
be seen here
. The most striking feature of BSU’s uniform is the wraparound
bronco logo on the helmet.

Love it or hate it — and most comments leading up to the official unveiling
hated it — the uniform has drawn a ton of comments from Hokie fans. Check out
