Kentucky will don alternate road uniforms on Feb. 16 when the Cats travel to Knoxville, Tenn., to take on the Tennessee Volunteers. UK is one of a select number of Nike/Jordan Brand schools that will wear the Nike Hyper Elite Road Jersey this season. A logo inspired by each team’s home court appears on the jersey’s center chest, a piece of “home away from home” to wear with pride. The back nameplate also features iconic references to the team’s mascot and home crowd.
The shorts are made of 100-percent recycled polyester while the jersey is made from at least 96-percent recycled polyester — an average of 22 recycled plastic bottles per uniform.
