Badgers to wear modified uniforms in Rose Bowl

Wisconsin rarely plays with its uniforms, but Bret Bielema said Monday the team will wear a modified uniform in the Rose Bowl Jan. 2.

And yes, it will be more than just the red pants Wisconsin rolled out in the Rose Bowl last year, something that has become somewhat of a tradition for the Badgers in Pasadena. In fact, Bielema ruled out the red pants altogether.

"I can guarantee you we won't be wearing red pants, but everything else is up for grabs," Bielema said.

What modifications we will see are unclear as Bielema wouldn't give any hints, but we saw Adidas play with its uniforms a little bit this season using the company's old-school retro logo. Notre Dame and Michigan, two Adidas schools, used retro Adidas unis in their primetime game earlier this season.

The Badgers are the road team in the Rose Bowl, so unless the Ducks decide to wear white -- which they haven't done as the home team all season -- then the Badgers are still going to have to wear white tops.

Bielema painted the Rose Bowl as an "Adidas vs Nike" game and cited Oregon's numerous Nike combinations as motivation for the modified uniforms.

The Wisconsin head coach added that uniforms have not been finalized and athletic director Barry Alvarez still needs to give approval.
