Arizona Wildcats To Wear “Dress Whites” Alternate Uniforms For Military Appreciation Game

The Arizona football program will wear new “Dress Whites” alternate uniforms for Saturday’s Military Appreciation Game against Utah (2 p.m. ET on Pac-12 Network).

The all-white look features the Wildcats’ standard white helmet and pants along with a new jersey that includes red digital camouflage in the numbers and blue digital camouflage on the sleeves and contrasting collar.

There’s also a patch on the right shoulder for the 355th Fighter Wing, which is stationed at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in southeast Tucson. 

This won’t be the first military-themed uniform for Arizona, which also wore U.S.S. Arizona-inspired uniforms against Hawai’i in 2016 to mark the 75th anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor. 

The Wildcats also donned the helmet from that uniform – which displayed a simple red “A” on both sides, similar to what the program wore in 1941 – for their game against the Rainbow Warriors in 2019.

Last season, Arizona unveiled a “Battle Gray” alternate uniform for their Military Appreciation Game against Colorado. It featured a “DM” decal on the back of the helmet as a nod to the local Air Force base.

That decal can be seen on the back of this year’s helmets, as well.
