PROVO, Utah – BYU football gave Cougar fans a surprise following a win over the North Alabama Lions as a “Blackout” uniform was teased on social media.

The Cougars beat the Lions 66-14 at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Saturday, November 21.

After the big win, BYU football teased a black uniform with royal blue and white accents.

The “Blackout” helmet shown featured a royal blue chrome face mask.

The Cougars last sported black uniforms during games in 2016.

Prior to that, BYU first wore the uniforms in 2012 and 2014.

BYU owns a 2-1 record all-time in the “Blackout” uniforms.

In April, BYU insider Mitch Harper wrote about the Cougars’ blackout uniforms and said:

“As more time passes and we are farther removed from the trendy “blackout” faze in college football, I ask myself, why was this a thing? BYU debuted all-black uniforms for the first time in 2012 against No. 10 Oregon State at home. They then wore them again in 2014 against UNLV.

There’s a segment of the BYU fan base that loves these uniforms, but for me, what turns me off to them is the helmet decal. Now the 2016 blackout uniforms worn in Taysom Hill’s last game as a BYU Cougar against Utah State were a slight upgrade because of the improved helmet decal.”

BYU’s final scheduled regular season game as of November 21 is against the San Diego State Aztecs.

Wide receiver coach Fesi Sitake tweeted that the uniforms would be worn against San Diego State.

The Cougars are slated to host the Aztecs in Provo on December 12. Kickoff time for the game has yet to be announced.
