BYU Athletic Director, Tom Holmoe said in a Media Day web chat today on BYUtvsports.com that the popular 2012 alternate black jerseys will not be brought back in 2013. Holmoe said he was surprised by the success of the jerseys, and because of the surprising success the black uniforms will be brought back in future seasons.
The black jerseys were worn against 10th ranked Oregon State last year.
Holmoe also mentioned that the BYU’s vintage royal blue jerseys will be brought back in a future season as well. BYU last wore the throwback royal blue jerseys in 2009 against rival Utah and Oregon State in the 2009 Las Vegas Bowl. The royal blue uniforms were brought out as a way to honor the 25th anniversary of the 1984 National Championship season.
