It should be spelled "Nile Kinnick"?

The shoulders of the green uniforms look bright white to me. I think the change was made to make the pass receivers more visible to the passer. It was November, and it can get a little bit dark late in the game. A clip from this game is shown on the video board at each Iowa home game while the audio of Kinnick's Heisman acceptance speech is played, just before the National Anthem.
