Rhode Island (2014), Sacred Heart (2014), UConn (2014)

  We continue our swing through the uniforms of 2014 with two rebuilding programs sandwiched around a championship team.

Rhode Island
  OK, so Rhody's been rebuilding since about 1986, but that's beside the point. Under first-year coach Jim Fleming, the blue pants from previous years were put away after the season opener and white pants were worn the rest of the way. The Rams were 1-11 overall, 1-7 (11th out of 12 teams) in the CAA.

Sacred Heart
  The Pioneers changed nuttin' from last year -- a good thing, I say. Sacred Heart went 9-3 overall and 5-1 in the Northeast Conference to capture the league title. The team was ranked No. 22 at season's end, and reached the NCAA FCS tournament, losing to Fordham in the opening round.

The Huskies, with new coach Bob Diaco, chopped the eight styles from last year to "only" six, with a midseason face mask change. The Huskies were 2-10 overall, 1-7 (tied for 10th and last) in the American Athletic Conference.

  Up next: UMass, UNH and Yale!
