SidelineSwap, in partnership with Lacrosse Playground, is getting ready to crown this year’s National Champion of Gear. The matchups have been selected.
Day 1 Featured Matchups:
Kansas University (KS) v. Dirty Beavers (MA)
With CPXR’s and Nike Uniforms they are definitely a force to be reckoned with. Anything with a Jayhawk logo is going to make you an early favorite in our book. But lookout for the Dirty Beavers in this 3 v 6 matchup. The Beavers are ready to make their own run at the title with this hilariously epic uniform design from Pro Athletics.
Pabst Blue Ribbon (TX) v. Niagara University (NY)
These Pabst Blue Ribbon lids from HeadWrapz made a splash on Instragram when SidelineSwap posted them Friday night. But when Niagara University snuck their entry in at the last minute they set themselves up for an epic battle in this 2 v 7 matchup.
