Utah Introduces USS Salt Lake City Basketball Uniforms
SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Athletics introduced USS Salt Lake City jerseys for its men’s and women’s basketball programs.
The University of Utah’s athletic department unveiled the new uniforms in a video post to social media on Wednesday, November 24.
The jerseys feature black, gray, and white colors.
On the front of the jersey is the word “UTAH” in block letters. The back has the words “USS SALT LAKE CITY.”
Utah’s interlocking U logo is also featured on the lower part of the uniform.
The basketball jerseys are a continuation of Utah Athletics’ campaign to honor the USS Salt Lake City, which was a heavy cruiser in World War II.
Utah’s football team wore “USS Salt Lake City” uniforms during their win over the No. 3 Oregon Ducks on November 20. The jerseys were part of a Military Appreciation Day.
This season, the two programs own a combined 9-0 record to start the season.

Up next for Utah men’s basketball (5-0) is a meeting with rival and No. 18 ranked BYU on Saturday, November 27 at 7:30 p.m. (MDT). The game will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.
