SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – When the Utes take the field in 2020 beginning Nov. 7, they will have a more classic look to their all-red uniforms.

The Utah equipment staff tweeted a video with some changes to the uniform combination that features the red helmets with red jerseys and red pants.

“The overall look of the jersey remains the same,” Utah equipment staff said in the video. “The updates were to the fabric as well as the cut. Most notable changes were to the pants. We took the stripe straight down the leg and got rid of the color blocking on the back. This gives the pant a more traditional look. The fabric and cut were also updated. The waist moved from a traditional belt to an elastic draw string and waist band. This will be the first time in Utah football history that the number 0 will be represented on the field. These subtle changes will give us a more classic look while still keeping our identity. This will also give us the flexibility to do more one-offs with special uniforms in the future.”

Devin Lloyd was the player showing off the new look in the video. He changed his number from 20 to 0 now that the NCAA has allowed players to wear the number 0 in games.

Utes wide receiver Jaylen Dixon also changed his number from 25 to 0. In the Kyle Whittingham era, Utah is 32-4 when they wear the all-red uniform combination and are 18-4 since joining the Pac-12.

Utah will open the 2020 season on November 7 at Rice-Eccles Stadium against Arizona.
