When Utah takes the field against TCU next month, first off I hope both teams are unbeaten, and the Utes will be part of the Wounded Warrior project with special uniforms. I am pretty confident Kyle Whittingham will not like wearing a different uniform since that will take them out of their normal routine.
The ACC patch was probably a velcro patch that was not replaced for the Utah photo.
Here is what the Wounded Warrior project is about:
The uniforms were designed in an effort to recognize the sacrifices made by those who have served and those that continue to serve in our nation’s Armed Forces. Each team will replace their last names on their jerseys with a core value embellishment – Duty, Honor, Courage, Commitment, Integrity, Country, or Service. Texas Tech is the official Under Armour Freedom game, and each Red Raider will have “Freedom” on the back of their jersey as a tribute the brave men and women that the initiative supports.
“The custom uniforms and gear provide us with an opportunity to engage college football fans and athletes, while uniting together to support the overall mission of Wounded Warrior Project,” said Kevin Plank, founder and CEO of Under Armour. “We are committed to honoring our nation’s troops who risk their lives protecting our house and we are proud to support them through these games and beyond.”
