This series will determine the ultimate UNC football uniform combination. Each week, your vote decides which set advances to the next round.

After weeks of looking back at the best uniforms, players, and moments in the North Carolina Tar Heels history, the time has come to crown the THB football uniform challenge Champion.

The third seeded 2015-present blue-on-white uniform with white helmet won in the championship in convincing fashion, garnering 84 percent of the votes. Here is the final bracket, with the championship uniform in the white box with Carolina Blue text (click to enlarge):

Emphasis on Carolina Blue and white. Timeless design combined with unique elements. Interchangeable with other blue and white uniform and helmet pieces. It is clear why this uniform set was victorious.

The 2015 redesign and overhaul of the branding and uniforms of the entire athletic department at UNC has certainly been a success.

This series documented nearly each game that this uniform was worn since its debut in 2015. The Tar Heels are sitting at 3-3 in the six games in which this uniform was worn.
