BYU COUGARS

BYU Set To Wear ‘Royal Rush’ Uniforms Against Cincinnati

Sep 25, 2023, 9:09 AM | Updated: 2:27 pm

PROVO, Utah – BYU football is rolling out one of its top looks for the first Big 12 home game at LaVell Edwards Stadium.

The Cougars will host fellow Big 12 newcomer Cincinnati this Friday night. When they take the field, they will be wearing “Royal Rush” uniforms.

The Royal Rush uniform consists of royal blue jersey and pants, royal blue helmet with a royal blue facemask.

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.
