Virginia Tech unveils state-of-the-art uniforms

The Virginia Tech football team unveiled its new look for this week's game Monday morning on campus. 

Along with Nike executive Loren Hoppes, Frank Beamer, Cody Grimm and Tyrod Taylor, Bill Roth hosted the event, which took place outside Squires Student Center. 

The uniforms the Hokies will be wearing this Saturday are made from Nike's new Pro Combat design, built to enhance player's performance. 

Along with the jerseys, Nike is selling T-shirts featuring a school-specific slogan. Nike's slogan for Virginia Tech is "Good Guys Wear White." 

10 teams across the country will wear these uniforms in the coming weeks, including Texas and Florida State. 

"Nike has always been very good to us, and we are excited about wearing these new uniforms Saturday," Beamer said.

The uniforms have white helmets, jerseys, pants and cleats. The numbers and stripes are a blend of maroon and orange, a unique design designated the "Beamerball look" according to Hoppes. 

On the top of the pants' backside, the school's motto "Ut Prosim" is printed, as well as the phrase "Beamerball" on the back of the neckline. 

The helmets have two stripes, one each of maroon and orange, with the same maroon "VT" logo the team currently dons on a normal week.

 The Virginia Tech cheerleaders and dance team, the High Techs, kicked off the event, which lasted nearly an hour. Bill Roth, the voice of the Hokies MC'd the event, but was also joined on stage by Beamer and former Hokie legends Bruce Smith and Antonio Freeman. 

T-shirts with the "Good Guys Wear White" slogan and VT logo are now on sale for $20, while replica jerseys will be for sale online later this week, and will hit local stores following the Maryland game.
