Bowling Green Falcons Unveil New Throwback-Inspired Football Uniforms

The Bowling Green football program recently unveiled mockups of new uniforms for this season that are reminiscent of the Falcons’ look during the 1980s and 1990s.

The orange home, white road and brown alternate jerseys all feature single-color block numbers, a contrasting collar and a traditional striping pattern on the sleeves.

The graphics only show a white helmet, but the Falcons’ social media account confirmed in a subsequent post they will still have an orange lid in the rotation moving foward.

Both helmets will feature Bowling Green’s “Peekaboo” logo rather than the “LT” logo, which the Falcons used variations of from 1981-2006 and on special occasions since. 

It’s unclear what the pants will look like, as Bowling Green has not yet received the new uniforms from Nike. Presumably, they’ll have Brashier stripes like the vintage threads.

The Falcons also haven’t worn orange jerseys since their 2017 loss to rival Toledo, as they’ve only had brown and white jerseys at their disposal since a 2019 redesign.

Interestingly, the Rockets unveiled similar uniforms that offseason, complete diagonal stripes on the sleeves. The only difference was the colors, wordmark and number font.

The new home uniforms will make their debut against FCS Fordham on Aug. 29, while the road set will travel to Happy Valley when the Falcons take on Penn State on Sept. 7.

One additional note for those who will surely think Bowling Green’s new uniforms are simply copying the Cleveland Browns… it’s actually the other way around. 

The Browns adopted the Falcons’ color scheme after holding training camp in Bowling Green from their inaugural season in 1946 through the 1951 campaign.
