The Buffs will be dusting off their 1930’s era uniforms for this weekend’s game against the Wyoming Cowboys to celebrate Legacy Day. According to the athletic department, there has been widespread call from our alumni to “recognize those teams and students prior to the last quarter century….and win a game.”
This year’s throwback attempt is a fairly accurate reproduction of the jerseys worn by actual CU teams in the 30’s which is considerably better than in 1998 when we wore “throwback” uniforms that looked nothing like any uniform we’d ever worn in the past.
These throwback unis have the added benefit of looking very much like Wyoming’s colors if you ask me…maybe that’s all part of the new gameplan.
