PROVO, Utah – BYU football is back in black this week against Iowa State.
The Cougars rolled out a blackout uniform combination for the Saturday Big 12 tilt with the Cyclones. What’s notable about this blackout combination for BYU is that they will be wearing a new helmet.

It’s an all-black helmet with a stretch Y logo. The helmet features speckles of royal blue.
Last year, BYU wore a similar design against Notre Dame, but it featured a gradient helmet that included royal blue. BYU donned the black uniforms twice last season. Once against the Irish and then in the New Mexico Bowl win over SMU.
The bowl game against SMU saw BYU football roll out a Sailor Coug helmet decal on the gradient black lid.
Saturday’s blackout game at BYU will be the seventh game in BYU’s history with black uniforms.
