PROVO, Utah – The latest uniform combination for BYU football in their next game against Texas Tech is a traditional look.
BYU will wear a royal blue uniform, white pants, white helmet with a royal blue facemask. It’s a tradition-rich look on a day when BYU will celebrate homecoming this week versus the Red Raiders.

By my tracking, BYU hasn’t worn this combination since the LA Tech game during the 2020 COVID season. It’s surprising to think as this has been the iconic look for BYU football from the LaVell Edwards teams in the ’80s and early ’90s.
In recent seasons, BYU has donned a nickel-colored facemask that they call “The Giff.” They haven’t rolled with the royal blue facemask in this uniform combo since 2020.
It’s the 18th time since 2009 that BYU has donned this uniform combination. In 2009 against rival Utah, in honor of the 25th anniversary of the 1984 National Championship, BYU rolled out royal blue uniforms for the first time in 11 years.
