It’s game week, Gamedayr Nation, but before any football can be played, it’s time for teams to officially unveil any and all uniforms for Week 1.
On Monday, the Wyoming Cowboys did just that, announcing that the team will be going with a clean, all-white look for its Week 1 showdown at Nebraska. The jersey features a feathered pattern on either side of the collarbone, just above yellow stripes rising up from under the arms.
Instead of going with a full “Wyoming,” the Cowboys instead will simply have “WYO” printed above the dark brown numbers. Both the letting and numerals are bordered in yellow.
Enough about the jerseys themselves, however. Yes, the Nike threads look hyper-slick, but there’s a new wrinkle to Wyoming’s look that is even more Oregon than Oregon itself: The Cowboys will not be unveiling the uniforms it will be wearing on Saturdays until the Monday six days prior.
We have no idea if we will even be seeing these all-whites again. The look could be repeated, but we won’t know until a Monday later in the year.
This is obviously a move to build up awareness and to excite recruits. It’s clever, unique, and it has us here at UniBlog pumped to see what else they can come up with. Breaking out twelve different uniform combinations – all looking good too, because fashion knows no bye week, of course – is no easy task.
