BYU wore royal rush last season in a memorable home win over the Baylor Bears. Then in 2021, when they introduced a royal blue helmet for the first time since the 1960s, they wore a Royal Rush against Arizona in Las Vegas.
BYU enters the matchup with Cincinnati at 3-1, 0-1 in Big 12 play. Like BYU, Cincinnati is also looking for its first Big 12 win. Last week, the Bearcats lost to Oklahoma at home.
BYU is coming off a 38-27 setback against Kansas last week. In that game, they wore an All-White with navy blue trim uniform combination.
