Tulsa Football Unveils Throwback Uniforms
Sept. 15, 2008
Tulsa, Oklahoma - In conjunction with the first game in the newly-renovated H.A. Chapman Stadium, the Tulsa Golden Hurricane football team will wear throwback uniforms in Saturday's home opener against the New Mexico Lobos.
The throwback uniforms were unveiled today at Tulsa Head Coach Todd Graham's weekly news conference.
The new uniform dates back to the 1950s as the Hurricane will wear red jerseys with blue and gold stripes on the sleeves, gold pants and gold helmets with a middle blue stripe flanked by red stripes down the center of the helmet. TULSA - in white block lettering - has been added to the front of the jersey. In the 1950s, TULSA was not printed across the front of the jerseys, but was added to the throwback uniforms.
"With the renovations to the stadium, we also wanted to recognize the great tradition of Tulsa football. On this special day, we wanted to honor the many outstanding teams and players that have played in this stadium, and we felt that the way to do that was by wearing throwback uniforms," said Tulsa's Director of Athletics Bubba Cunningham.
Tulsa's official school colors are old gold, royal blue and crimson. Blue and gold are the basic colors with crimson as a trim color.
The Tulsa-New Mexico game kicks off at 6:05 pm this Saturday.
