WKU Football Reveals New Uniforms
Hiring a two-time BCS bowl participant in Bobby Petrino as its new head coach isn’t the only sign that Western Kentucky is serious about making its football program more big-time.
After sporting some uber-staid red and white uniforms for the past few seasons, the Hilltoppers are taking a big step up in style. WKU unveiled three new uniforms on Thursday, with new jerseys and pants coming in red, white and black. The font and numbering is sharper and more modern-looking than before, the colors pop more and (coolest of all) a watermark-like Aerographic containing WKU’s school seal is visible in the numbers on the front and back.
In addition, the silver chrome helmet that first came to light in late March wasn’t a prototype after all. Like the jerseys and pants, it represents a big upgrade. Grade: B+
