When it comes to college football, there’s no shortage of wild jersey combinations in the Pac-12, one-of-a-kind helmets in the Big Ten, and more than a few strange choices in the SEC. There are plenty of awesome alternate jerseys to choose from, but one school only wears their Saturday Best on rare occasions.
They say if you look good, then you play good, and when you’ve just clinched your second-straight SEC East title, you deserve to look your best. It’s time for the University of Georgia to bring out their iconic black jerseys for this weekend’s game against the Auburn Tigers.
The Georgia Bulldogs Black Out Jerseys aren’t a regular staple of Georgia’s uniform arsenal, but it’s a huge event when the Bulldogs emerge from the tunnel at Sanford Stadium wearing those sharp black uniforms with red trim. Since their debut in 2007, when the Matthew Stafford-led Bulldogs rolled Auburn 45-20 in a matchup of AP Top 25 teams, the jerseys have only made a handful of appearances since then.
Earlier this season, Georgia football’s equipment managers teased a potential return of the alternates by showing off all of the Georgia Bulldogs jerseys in a tweet back in May.
With home games remaining against Auburn, Massachusetts and Georgia Tech, as well as the SEC Championship game against the Alabama Crimson Tide, it seems like the perfect time for the Bulldogs to go back in black and bring out these big game football jerseys.
Even if the Bulldogs decide to keep these Nike football jerseys on the shelf for another date, despite not wearing them since 2016, you’re probably going to need to buy your own Georgia Bulldogs Black Out Replica Jersey for this weekend’s SEC game.
Fans have begun a social media movement using the hashtags #BlackoutAuburn and #BlackoutSanford ahead of hosting Auburn this Saturday in Athens. There’s going to be a ton of Women’s Black Long Sleeve T-Shirts, plus even more of the UGA fan shop’s new arrival with fans breaking out these Back-to-Back SEC East Division Football Champions T-Shirts.
The iconic UGA team logo and football gear has been worn by great players that went to the NFL, but some, like running back Todd Gurley II, who played at Georgia from 2012 to 2014, never had the chance to wear these black alternates as a Bulldog.
Give the people what they want, Kirby Smart, and let the kids celebrate another incredible season by rocking the Black Out Jerseys on Saturday.
