Kansas debuted some pretty sweet new adidas uniforms Saturday for its rivalry game against Kansas State.

Superstitious Jayhawks fans might think the new duds had something to do with their team having such an easy time with the Wildcats in an 86-60 romp.

Kansas plans to wear the new look intermittently the rest of this season and next. We're all for tradition, but why not just make this the permanent uniform?

There are two versions. KU wore the CHALK look against Kansas State. They are white with Kansas in blue script in an upward slant. The shorts featured a 1946 blue outlined Jayhawk.

The PHOG version of the uniforms are grey and a reminder of the 1988 national championship season with a circus font outlined in red. Both versions of the alternate uniforms feature tonal pinstripes that read:

Pay Heed. The game you love began here. Respect those who came before you. Make their legacy your own. Because destiny favors the dedicated. And rings don't replace work. In this game you don't get what you want. You get what you earn. We are Kansas. Together we rise. Rock Chalk Jayhawk!

Check out the full press release on the uniforms here.

Freshman Andrew Wiggins looked pretty sweet in his new duds, especially during this powerful flush.
