“The new sweater is intended to reach a broader geography than ‘Omaha’ which is currently featured on our hockey jerseys. We are Nebraska’s team, too. And, this also makes a statement about our agricultural ‘roots’. We are Nebraska Omaha – or simply NOM,” said Chancellor Jeffrey Gold.
“I love our new home jerseys,” said Athletic Director Trev Albert. “They have broad appeal and tell our fans, ‘We are corn people’.”
The school fight song has been changed to the Nom Nom song to reinforce the new brand message.
The uniforms will be launched next season and the Nom Nom fight song will be implemented immediately.
