Coinciding with a move to adidas this offseason, the Fresno State Bulldogs unveiled new uniforms on Monday afternoon.
Fresno State will continue to wear two helmets, one red and one white, that typically display the Bulldogs script but can be swapped out for the four-paw Bulldog logo on occasion. The front bumper reads “‘Dogs,” while the Green “V” remains on the back to represent the San Joaquin Valley and the importance of the agricultural industry to the region.
The new uniforms, meanwhile, are a bit simpler than their predecessor, which were introduced in 2014 and featured contrasting sleeve caps and templated pants. Fresno State is written across the chest in the athletic department’s new “Bulldog Born” font, which is accompanied by matching numbers on the front, back and sleeves and a contrasting collar and cuffs.
Fresno State now dons a deeper shade of red as its primary look, but also has the option of wearing white or navy blue jerseys alongside matching or contrasting pants, which lack stripes and feature the four-paw Bulldog logo on the right hip.
“We know what Fresno State football has always been. We know what Fresno State will always be,” senior associate athletics director for external relations Frank Pucher told The Fresno Bee. “It’s an homage to our past, which is what we wanted. This is who we are. That was our goal, reaffirming that tradition and what we are, the Valley that we represent, but modernizing it.”
