On Sept. 21, the BYU Cougars will be hosting the Utah Utes in a battle for in-state supremacy. In preparation for the Holy War (what could be a more fitting name for the schools’ rivalry?), BYU will be throwin’ it back to the royal blues the team sported and dominated in back in the day.
Interestingly, while we do not have confirmation of this, the school may be wearing royal blue pants as well as uniforms for the game. In the promo photo below, we can see the white stripe running down the leg, helping delineate where the jersey ends and pants begin. An all-out royal blue look? We don’t mind it one bit.
Scroll below this photo to see how excited director of athletics Tom Holmoe is for the Holy War Throwbacks.
