Like Northwestern, Wisconsin is throwing it way back with these uniforms for the Sept. 28 game against the Wildcats.

The plainness of the numbers without a nameplate look cool on the back, but the simple “UW” on the front and helmet are a little underwhelming.

6. Northwestern

There will be throwback uniforms on both sides when Northwestern and Wisconsin meet at Camp Randall on Sept. 28.

There’s something about that white uniform that looks great, but these are still pretty simple compared to the other teams on the list.

4. Boston College

Boston College is bringing it back to the era of Doug Flutie with these classic 1984 throwbacks. That season, the Eagles went 10-2 and infamously came back to beat Miami with Flutie’s Hail Mary pass to Gerard Phelan as time expired.

3. Cincinnati

The all-red combination with black- and -white-striped pants for Cincinnati “represent a multi-year period from the late 1950s to early 1960s.” The look also has a white helmet with a red and black stripe.

1. Maryland

These ones are sweet, and Maryland is bringing them back for homecoming against Michigan on Nov. 2. The “Terps” script on the helmet is especially sharp and the yellow, black and white stripes on the sleeves are a perfect touch.

Clemson and Alabama ended last season as the nation's top two college football teams. Alabama looked far and away like the best team all season until Clemson pounded the Crimson Tide, 44-16, in the championship game on Jan. 7. With quarterback Trevor Lawrence back this season leading the Tigers as a sophomore, Clemson is the easy No. 1. Alabama could just as easily replace Clemson as the national champion this season, so the Tide is naturally No. 2.
