Ranked SEC Soccer Uniforms: All 14 . Helmet and Jersey Sets

SEC Uniform Referee.

Just like the teams that wear it, the shirt and helmet combinations dominate college football as the most popular look, especially when two teams wear them simultaneously.

In terms of other classic shoes worn by Ohio State, USC, Texas, and Notre Dame, the Southeast Conference rules the place, and they look good doing it. Uniforms might mean more, too.

Here’s how to rank the uniforms for all 14 teams, focusing on the regular jersey and helmet combinations, unless otherwise noted.

14. South Carolina

Too busy! White, onyx, and black look great on their own or if you just pair two together. But the trio, or at least the way USC uses it, create an inappropriate mix that has yet to find a rhythm on the football field. Maybe it’s the feather logo that appears on the Gamecock, which again looks great on its own. Listen, it’s not you, it’s us.

13. Mississippi

Some people like maroon. You know, like Mississippi fans. There is nothing wrong with a Bulldogs costume, other than perhaps the smaller font above the numbers on the chest plate. We prefer Jackie Sherrill’s ’90s capital letter “MISS. STATE,” including the stacked MSU logo on the sides of the helmet.

12. Kentucky

If the Wildcats shirt remains all-royal blue, that might seem too obvious for a program looking to stand out, but we’re staying on the fence about checkered shoulder pads. Kentucky greats like Josh Allen and Benny Snell made it look good with their championships on the field, but we can’t go any higher here.

11. Missouri

Despite two appearances in the Conference title game since joining the Securities and Exchange Commission in 2012, Missouri’s footballing identity still needs work, starting with the old gold and black. They’ve had as many standardized variations as any squad in the South, swapping out helmet designs with chrome, matte black and more, and they’re all white, with logo designs tweaked. The oval tiger on the side of the helmet is a nice design, but we’re actually digging into the more traditional “Block M” look that showed up at various points last season.

10. Texas A&M

More maroon, the Aggies logo on the sides of the helmets gives them the edge over Bulldogs. The Texas State crest can go down on the hip, but it looks like A&M belongs in the SEC, especially when they’re rocking Kyle Field. The traditional maroon helmets and jerseys bring the tradition, but we wouldn’t mind going back to the White Helmets back in Johnny’s football days, when the Aggies made their biggest success ever.

9. Vanderbilt

Vandy got a glow in 2021. Whether it’s a white shirt with black trim and gold numbers and lettering, or a black with gold trim and white lettering and numbers, jersey shirts look good when paired with both white and gold pants. They eliminated the chain and star “V” design on the helmets in favor of gold headgear with black and white stripes and a large black “V” on the side. Smart look!

8. Arkansas

Rugged simplicity is perfect for the struggling Sam Pittman club. The Razorbacks pull the block lettering above the front chest numbers better than anyone else in the country, perhaps other than Oklahoma, and their logo is one of the most underrated in the SEC, looking great on the side of a basic helmet.

7. Ole Miss

Points are deducted for not sticking to a powder blue look all season long. Tradition is tradition, but it’s just something the fan base loves, as evidenced by the powdery blue sea in the stands or the tailgate location wherever the game (or party) is. Sure, royal blue helmets over a bright red outfit and white pants pop, but if they all go powdery, they’ll climb the charts.

6. Tennessee

A man said, “It’s that puke, inside a pumpkin orange.” Each has his or her own. Most people don’t consider orange to be the most flattering color in any outfit, but you have to work with what you have. And the bright orange of the Tennessee Volunteers remains almost synonymous with SEC football, even if two decades have passed since they competed nationally. They ruled once, and Josh Hubble is looking to put them back in the lead. The Vols even look good in all-black alternatives, when they tone down the orange, but not in the black jersey over the orange pants as they did in this Halloween game in 2009.

5. Florida

The Gators’ logo on the orange helmet on top of the royal blue shirt and white pants is a classic ensemble that requires little or no change. And after. While Florida has yet to wear anything totally ugly, why deviate from perfection? I really think when Tim Tebow led the team out of the tunnel in that all-white game in the 2009 SEC title match, he made Bama want to hit them even more. Sometimes change is good. Sometimes,… not so.

4. Georgia

Defending National Champions look great in red or white, whether that’s the perfect combination with the silver pant draped in the clear “G” logo on the helmets. Confession: The black shirts, which got trampled when Alabama visited Athens in 2008, look really cool. In fact, this bama blowout indicates their only loss when wearing it, which is probably why they’ve been resurrected ever since.

Auburn

3. Auburn

The appearance of the tigers has seen very few changes, and why do they? Nobody plays with more confidence, especially during the Iron Bowls, than Auburn in burnt orange and navy blue. The color of the face mask may vary between orange, navy, and white, without much consensus on keeping it permanent. And frankly, along with their arch-rival and the Texas Longhorns, Auburn’s road whites rank among the best in the country.

2. LSU

All that purple and gold on the green grid looks like a Mardi Gras party inside Tiger Stadium. As a permanent force in college football, LSU stole the spotlight during a pure tournament during which their white jerseys appeared relatively unscathed as they separated from the rest of the league. Minor points deduction for insisting on wearing the same shirt while at home or out and about, other than on special occasions when they wear those horrible purple shirts. They know what works for them. Plus, no two outfits look better together on the football field than the LSU outfit and our next pick…

1. Alabama

Contact us biased. Some see the simplicity of the scarlet and white outfit as banal and boring. We see the lineage of tradition and heroism, a look that doesn’t just scream in college football, it just he is. Crimson Tide gameday looks have seen some changes over the years, but not much. Crimson shirts, white numbers, white pants with two crimson stripes down the leg, crimson helmets with white numbers on the sides and a white stripe down the middle. “[Nick] “Saban has been so ingrained in us that it’s not about the uniform, it’s about your playing,” Carson Tinker, a longtime former Tide player, told AL.com. “He didn’t let anything distract us, which is another reason I think the uniform hasn’t changed.” Here’s hoping they never do.
