FROM THE LOCKER ROOM TO THE BALLPARK — College football season is almost upon us, which means one thing: time for new uniforms and unreal prep and middle school plays.

Additionally, we'll take a look at Under Armour's new ad campaign, and bring you back to a ballpark where one Major League Baseball mascot took "seventh-inning stretch" to a whole new level.

Here's what caught our eye floating around the Internet.

UniWatch rolls out latest uniform updates

For fans of college football and fashion (is that a weird crossover, or not?), UniWatch released its comprehensive list of updated looks that will hit campus football stadiums this fall.

Some of the looks are updated, cleaner versions of standard uniforms, like Old Dominion, whose move from Nike to Under Armour has already improved its choice of font selections.

Others include throwback uniforms and special-edition alternates, like Oregon's glow-in-the-dark uniforms that will make for perfect late-night Ultimate Frisbee games in Eugene.

And still others are … interesting, like TCU's camo-disguised-as-lizard-skin print jerseys.

In related news, college football kicks off the season Saturday with North Dakota State and Montana, a top-15 FCS matchup that will be broadcast on ESPN.

Middle school QB avoids sack with a cartwheel

You've heard of shifty quarterbacks and dodging pocket passers. But one football player took the term to a new level during a middle school game Tuesday.

The Grand Ridge defense thought they had a sack to push back Blountstown on first-and-10. But the quarterback cleverly cartwheeled over the pass rusher.

The best part is the play didn't die there. Blountstown's quarterback then rolled right, spotted a wide-open receiver down field, and hurled a touchdown pass as the receiver gingerly trotted into the end zone.

Who says junior high football is boring?

Steph Curry rules … himself

Hype videos sponsored by clothing, apparel and shoe companies aren't new. But Under Armour took perhaps its most creative/intense approach to marketing with its latest ad, called "Rule Yourself," that features NBA champion Steph Curry, current Master's champ Jordan Speith and professional ballet dancer Misty Copeland.

The repetitive, hypnotic, almost militaristic chanting of numbers gets you in the mood — but it's the army of Curries, Speiths and Copelands drilling one dribble, shot and demi-pointes that will really frighten you.

All the single aliens

We can't leave you in too serious of a mood, so to finish off the day, here is the Houston Astros' mascot Orbit performing to Beyonce's all-time great sports song, "Single Ladies."

Orbit's previous moves have included tea with David Ortiz and a feud with J.P. Arencibia, but this one may top them all.

The most impressive part of the routine, though, isn't Orbit's booty-shaking moves, or his near-perfect execution of an iconic dance of arguably the top diva in today's world. More so, it's the complete focus and concentration by ballpark security, who don't react one bit to the masterpiece going on around them.

Don't blink.
