Boston College Eagles (2016); Yale Bulldogs (2016)

We wrap up the uniforms of 2016 with the first and last schools on our alphabetical list.

Boston College (7-6 overall, 2-6 ACC, defeated Maryland 36-30 in Quick Lane Bowl) added gold sleeves with a pair of small stripes, which also appeared diagonally on the pants. The Eagles also revived the "red bandana" uniform (see the helmet stripe and shoes on the second uniform), worn in memory of Welles Crowthera BC alum who died after rescuing at least a dozen people during the 9/11 attacks.  The bandana unis were last won in 2014.

Craving some more BC unis? Look right here: 201520142013200720001995-961994198419821978-801968-771958-60, 19571955-561950-521939Rivalry Week (w/Holy Cross).

Yale (3-7 overall, 3-4 Ivy League, defeated Harvard for the the first time since 2006), ended the Ivy League's Nike monopoly by switching to Under Armour unis. The only changes, all minor, were the addition of the "YALE" word mark on the jersey front, the noticeably smaller sleeve numbers and the small "Y" on the pants. Not every college team, especially in this day and age, shows so much restraint when changing manufacturers.
