It’s the first time that BYU has ever worn this uniform combination. The program brought royal blue helmets into their uniform identity at the beginning of the 2021 season. Since getting those royal blue helmets into the rotation, they have not accompanied that lid with a royal blue uniform and white pant combination.
Last season, BYU came close to this uniform combination in the home game against Utah State. The only difference was that BYU donned a royal blue facemask, not a white one as they will on Saturday night.
Since 2021, BYU has been 6-2 overall when wearing a royal blue helmet. The two losses were last season against the Razorbacks and Oregon Ducks.
It’s expected that BYU will have 12 different uniform combinations for the 2023 season.
