Lincoln, Neb.-- Inside Memorial Stadium Saturday, scarlet and cream weren't the only colors dominating the stands.
Thousands of fans wore black to match the players, players that garnered a new black jersey with a black stripe on the helmet.
It's the second time in two years that the Huskers have worn alternate uniforms for one game.
"The black uniforms look awesome," Kevin Iwanski, a Husker fan, said.
"I think they're really going to jazz up the team and get everyone really excited about [the game]."
Prior to 2012, when Nebraska wore a mostly red uniform against Wisconsin, the last time the Huskers had altered their traditional look was in 2007 against Colorado.
The team wore all white against the Buffaloes in Boulder, Co.
A few said that the alternate uniforms are all the rage in college football, and that Nebraska stepping out of it's comfort zone is important to future recruits.
"It's a huge factor in recruiting with the change of uniforms," Mark Blaylock, of Omaha, said, "which is different from the Huskers, just because we're so stuck in our ways.
Wade Thompson, another fan inside Memorial stadium, echoed Blaylock. Thompson said that alternate uniforms help Oregon football bring in recruits, and if it works for them, it may help Nebraska.
Some ticket holders said they prefer the old look.
Some even said changing uniforms is bad luck for the Huskers because the Huskers typically lose when they adjust their look.
Other said that the uniforms have no real affect on the outcome of the game, and that they're glad to see one of Nebraska's unofficial colors getting a little attention.
"I think it's great," Michelle Mueller, another Husker fan, said, "I think it's very important to support both sides of the ball so, I think it's great."
