BYU Football Unveils New Navy Blue Helmet For Southern Utah Game

Sep 4, 2023, 9:36 AM | Updated: Sep 5, 2023, 7:08 pm

PROVO, Utah – When BYU football takes the field on Saturday against Southern Utah, they will be wearing a new helmet.

BYU unveiled a new navy blue helmet. The helmet features the stretch Y logo that was worn during BYU’s game against Notre Dame last season.

It’s the first time BYU will wear a navy blue helmet since the 2021 season. They wore a navy blue helmet four times that season. All three of BYU’s losses that year took place while wearing the navy blue helmet (Boise State, Baylor, UAB). The lone win in a navy blue helmet was against FCS Idaho State.

From 1999-2004, BYU’s primary helmet color was navy blue. That was when “Vegas tan” was also part of BYU’s uniform identity.

Saturday’s game against Southern Utah will be only the second meeting all-time between the in-state programs.
