Well, it’s a big week over here. Week 10. Statement Saturday. All that.
Several teams are wearing special uniforms honoring the military for the Salute to Service campaign.
Arizona State is honoring Pat Tillman with PT 42 on the jersey and helmet, and a patch on the back with a Tillman quote that reads, “Somewhere inside, we hear a voice. It leads us in the direction of the person we wish to become. But it is up to us whether or not to follow.”
Mississippi State’s “Statesman” jerseys and helmet are designed to look like the Mississippi Air National Guard transport plane named after Sonny Montgomery, an MSU alum, World War II veteran and longtime U.S. Representative. The back of the helmet features representations of the medals Montgomery was awarded during his military career.
Kansas uniforms feature a “KU WWII Vet” patch and the helmets showcase the Jayhawks logo as it would appear painted on a fighter jets, complete with a sheet metal texture.
