PROVO, Utah – When BYU football hosts Boise State on Saturday, October 9 at LaVell Edwards, the Cougars are going all-blue. A look that the Broncos typically wear.

BYU will wear all-navy uniforms against Boise State. It’s the first time since 2004 that BYU will don a navy blue helmet. BYU wore navy blue helmets with vegas tan decals from 1999-2004 before switching back to white helmets in 2005 when Bronco Mendenhall took over as head coach.

This is the sixth different uniform combination for BYU this season. BYU plans to wear a different uniform combination for each of its games in 2021.

In March, BYU rolled out a bunch of new uniform and helmet combinations to bring their total to 26 different looks. The all-navy look has not been worn this season.

BYU fans who are going to the game are being asked to wear navy blue for the matchup that is set to take place on network television.

This matchup with Boise State has become an annual rivalry for BYU since becoming an FBS Independent in 2011. BYU has won the last two meetings in the series. Last year’s victory over Boise State was BYU’s first on the Blue Turf.

Last year, BYU wore all-white uniforms against the Broncos with royal blue numbers and stripes. The last time BYU donned navy blue jerseys against Boise State was in 2017.

BYU enters the game against Boise State undefeated with a 5-0 record. Boise State comes into the game with a losing record at 2-3.
