Last season Utah unveiled a beautiful Neo-Throwback uniform for their homecoming game against Cal, which was the site of ESPN’s College Gameday. The uniform features the interlocking UU logo on a white helmet, a crimson jersey, and white pants. For the homecoming game against Arizona tomorrow at Rice-Eccles Stadium at 8:00 p.m. MT, Utah will again don the throwback uniform.
I have been highly complementary of Utah’s uniforms over the past few seasons. They have so many great looks, and I love that regardless of what uniform combination they wear, you can always tell it is Utah. Of all of the new uniforms Utah has added, this one is by far my favorite. I love the white-crimson-white look overall, and the UU logo looks great. There really is nothing negative about the throwback uniform. Utah struck the right balance of looking classic without looking dated and having some nice modern twists without taking away from the throwback concept. The University also really reinforces the UU as part of homecoming week festivities.
