The team made it to the game that will decide college football's national champion. And now they won't be in green and yellow. They'll play in new white jerseys with gray numbers and silver accents.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. The Oregon Ducks defy one of the rules of life. Don't mess with success. They made it to the college football national championship, and now they are changing uniforms. They will not be green and yellow. They'll play in new, white jerseys with grey numbers and silver accents. This team does this a lot. It is not an organization for some player with a lucky shirt. Maybe it gives them an edge. Ohio State players might not recognize opponents they saw in game films. You are listening to MORNING EDITION.
