The Kansas football program will wear new throwback-inspired alternate uniforms for its homecoming game against Texas Tech on Oct. 16.
The alternate uniform – dubbed “Hail To Old KU” – features a powder blue jersey reminiscent of what the “Kansas Comet,” running back Gale Sayers, wore during his career with the Jayhawks from 1962-64, with “Kansas” prominently displayed the chest.
The numbers are primarily blue with white and crimson outlines, while the sleeve caps feature a raised Jayhawk head. The blue helmets, pants and gloves, meanwhile, include a throwback Bowtie “K” logo from 1929.
“The goal of the uniform was to accurately understand Kansas Football history and the characteristics that are associated with being a Jayhawk, such as Proud, Classic and Bold,” the team said in a press release.
