UTSA has revealed a slick new uniform combination ahead of their rivalry match up with North Texas this Saturday, October 29th. It will mark the first time that UTSA has ever worn a black helmet. The helmet has a glossy finish and is complemented by an over-sized Rowdy head decal and a chrome orange face mask. UTSA’s cleats will also sport a chrome flare as the bottom of the Adidas cleats shine brightly orange.
The Roadrunners’ jerseys are a gun metal grey, reminiscent of the lead-colored jerseys the Runners wore in their 2014 meeting against New Mexico. Silver lettering on the jersey will be matched with a sharp silver Rowdy head on the hip of the grey pants.
Each “Black Bird” jersey and select helmets will be made available to fans through an online auction. The auction that UTSA conducted for the lead-colored jerseys from 2014 generated significant revenue for the program and I suspect UTSA will see an even greater windfall this season with the renewed energy surrounding the program.
