The University of Oregon football team will take to the field for their annual Spring Football Game wearing special edition Nike Mach Speed 'Salute the Day' uniforms which honor American servicemen and servicewomen. The 'Salute the Day' uniforms are the latest in a half-decade collaboration between Nike and the University of Oregon to create a custom-designed uniform for the Spring scrimmage.

Both the home and away uniforms feature a number of unique details including 'Salute the Day' nameplates in addition custom insignias and patches containing words and symbols honoring American service personnel.

In terms of performance, the Nike Mach Speed uniform features three distinct woven mesh fabrics for optimal thermoregulation. Each panel on the jersey and pants is matched specifically to the pads underneath for maximum airflow.

The kit includes laser-perforated mesh panels incorporated into high-heat areas of the mid-section, allowing for heat release where it's most needed. The jersey armhole openings are rotated forward for a more articulated fit and improved range of motion.
