BYU Blackout Uniforms Released

Joining a rather large contingent of teams unnecessarily adding copious amounts of black to their on-field identity: Brigham Young University. They’re wearing these on October 13th, at home against Oregon State (more information here). Coach Bronco Mendenhall’s take on the uniforms:

“The uniform was designed to have the same striping and maintain an element of tradition, while also creating a fun atmosphere for the team and the fans. Our plan is to wear the uniforms for this one game.”

Let’s hope so. I like how sharp they look in the Nike studio photos, but that rarely translates well onto the field. Time will tell.
