Boo hiss. I guess this doesn't look as bad as most college football teams who have felt the need to wear an all-black uniform, even though black isn't one of their colors, but not much.

Oahu, HI

BYU is going to Lose.

Woods Cross, UT

BYU? In black? Why? Is this an Under Armour thing like the U?

Sandy, UT

At least the Y is prominant...

Kamas/United States, UT

They are pretty nice, but why where black when it isn't even your color? That doesn't matter anyway, because we are still going to lose 42-7.


Don't they have anything better to spend the money on?

a blackout uniform for a daylight game? big deal.

I'm OK with doing something every once in a while that the players get excited for and gets the fans involved. Just wish the promo department at BYU could get things put together better, like doing the black out during a night game rather than mid-afternoon. And black is WAY better than the silly tan accent color which was a fiasco! Would be nice to see them suit up again during a night game.

I hope our QB can see our receivers down field. Personally, I'd want a nice bright target to throw to. :)

Mikey... when Riley throws, being able to see the target matters not.

I wonder...I have been told it is totally impossible to field a team in BYU blue rather than Utah State blue our current color, how can we now field a team in black?

Goll this is going to be neat.

Austin, TX

I think the unis are cool.

/tips hat to BYU for that

Go Beavers.

Overton, NV

I'm not too enamored of the "black uniform" thing either.

But can we quit with the whining of the "Utah State blue". Last I checked, they didn't have trademark or copyright on the color.

St George, UT

I like the uniform...pretty cool. I hope they don't have the same effect that the Utes Uni's had against Arizona State....ouch!

Little brothers down south following big brothers example.

The black unis of our little brothers up north were simply copied from numerous other schools, just like the Utes copied the "U" (name and sign from the University of Miami), and Solomon Levi (the melody the Utes copied for their Fight Song).


I think the new black unis look very cool and its fun to have a little variety once in awhile. It's just too bad they couldn't have coordinated breaking out the new unis for a night game.

Springville, UT

So now they are relying on costly gimmicks?

South Jordan, UT

I smell a copycat!

Why would BYU come out with this at this time? We are playing Utah State this week not Oregon State. Why didn't they wait until next Monday to release this? BYU contines to amase me. No offense and no offensive coordinator and no line coach. There needs to be some big changes in this program if they ever want to get to the next level of college football.

Centerville, UT

Really surprised by the reactions on here. It's just a uniform. No KamUte, BYU didn't copy Utah. Other teams have been doing this for awhile now. It sort of the thing to do now. Good marketing. Also, someone was concerned about the money spent on these uniforms. Who cares? BYU football has plenty of money. They don't pay for their players like some schools in the SEC and Big 12 do. They can afford it.
