2013 Fiesta Bowl: Oregon uniforms chosen by head coaches from other sports

Oregon Ducks senior defensive end Dion Jordan shed a little light on who is responsible for choosing the team's uniform combination each week.

The ever-changing uniforms of the Oregon Ducks have been the talk of college football for several years, and at a press conference on Tuesday, senior defensive end Dion Jordan shed some light on how the team determines which color combination the team wears on a weekly basis.

"Usually we have Coach Kelly ask the head coaches from other sports, like tennis, golf, basketball teams, and they usually come up with the combination for the week," Jordan said. "They also have an assortment of uniforms also. It's great to have the option to wear whatever you want to that week."

When asked if the Ducks' players have any input on their game-day garb, Jordan said that the team's weekly get up isn't really a concern of him or his teammates.

"As players, it doesn't mean much to us. We still have to play the game," Jordan said. "We focus on what we have to do on the field."

Kickoff for the Fiesta Bowl is slated for Thursday, Jan. 3, at 6:30 p.m. MT at University of Phoenix Stadium, and the game will be televised on ESPN.
