Default BYU goes "old school" w/ football uni's

BYU going back to old-style uniforms
April 2, 2005

PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Brigham Young is going back to its old-style football uniforms, hoping the move brings back some of the Cougars' success, too.

BYU unveiled the new uniforms Friday. They feature a white helmet with the traditional blue oval surrounding a white ``Y'' on the sides and with two blue stripes down the middle, scrapping the blue helmets that were adopted in 1999.

Home jerseys will be a slightly darker blue than those worn under former coach LaVell Edwards, but the style is similar. Road uniforms will feature white jerseys and dark blue pants.

"This is the look of BYU football,'' new coach Bronco Mendenhall said. "This is how people know BYU. Once you have a symbol that reflects greatness, it should not be changed. Consistency is key to a lasting tradition.''

Players will also receive "cougar head'' helmet decals as awards.

The Cougars will play their first game in the new uniforms when they host Boston College on Sept. 3.
