Boston College Eagles (1995-96)

The 1990s Boston College uniform represents a transition between the Flutie-era look and the modern uniform: It has the Champion-style numbers from the 1980s, but the darker red and, er, golder gold from the modern uniform. It's not the most remarkable uniform, but it's instantly recognizable as a BC uniform, and that's not a bad thing.

If you look reeeeeeeealy closely, you'll see a teeny-tiny Big East logo at the bottom of the V-neck on each jersey. I kinda miss the days before every jersey had to loudly boast its conference on the front, usually as an excuse to add patches to a jersey already weighed down with word marks, sleeve logos and manufacturers logos. Sometimes, less is more, and this uniform bears that out.
