One of the storylines in the Southwestern Athletic Conference this coming football season is new gear from head to toe. Several SWAC schools have agreed to new apparel deals. The conference previously had a multi-year agreement with Russell Athletic, they outfitted all 10 teams in the league.
A source close to The Reservation tells WLBT Sports that Alcorn State is close to a deal with adidas. So the four-time East champion Braves could be sporting the three stripes. Adidas already sponsors Mississippi State, they have a deal with Southern Miss starting in the 2018-2019 school year.
