With 128 (and counting) programs at the Football Bowl Subdivision level, it's hard to keep up with the ever-revolving door of college football uniforms. Fear not, however, as we've compiled a list of this week's uniform changes just for you.

While many schools reveal their uniform combination in the days prior to the game, we recognize that others may not decide until moments leading up to kickoff. Therefore, make sure to follow @sbnuniforms on Twitter, where we'll do our best to keep you updated throughout the day.



The Blue Devils will rock matte black helmets with new white jerseys and pants against Troy.


The Hurricanes will pair their traditional white helmet with an orange jersey and pants combination against Florida A&M.

North Carolina

As part of the stadium-wide Tar Pit Stripe Out, the Tar Heels will alternate Carolina blue helmet, black jersey, and Carolina blue pants.

North Carolina State

Expected after the team debuted their Pack in Black helmets, the Wolfpack unveiled all-black uniforms for game against Old Dominion.

Big Ten


The Illini will pair their new white helmet and pants with their orange tops for the second weekend in a row. Rumor has it that their blue jerseys will not be available this season, so we may see more of this combo.


As part of a Heroes Day celebration at Ryan Field, the Wildcats will don American flag-themed decals against Northern Illinois.

Ohio State

Expect the Buckeyes to wear their Rivalry uniforms for every big game in the future, as the team will against Virginia Tech on Saturday night.



For the first time since 2011, the Army football team will wear white pants at home when the team plays host to Buffalo. Meanwhile, the all-black helmets will honor the 1st Infantry Division of the United States Army.



As long as the Bobcats avoid alternate uniforms, as they will at Kentucky, the team has one of the best looks in the country.

Western Michigan

The Broncos are wearing cowboy hat-shaped helmet stickers this season in honor of late coach Bill Doolittle.

Mountain West

Fresno State

The Bulldogs will wear white helmets, white jerseys and debut its grey pants on Saturday at Utah.

PAC 12

Arizona State

You know the uniform fad is getting out of hand when a team like Arizona State has to announce that they'll wear their traditional gold helmets and pants on the road.


With seemingly every team either adding either a state outline or flag to their helmets, the Golden Bears followed suit. The Bears will rock blue helmets and jerseys with gold pants on Saturday, as well.


After debuting their Northwest Frost helmet at Hawai'i, the Huskies return to a traditional look against Eastern Washington.



The Razorbacks will don their new home uniforms for the first time this season. Arkansas has also added the new front-facing hog logo to their helmets as pride stickers for academic achievements.


As is custom for the first home game of the season, the Tigers will wear their white jerseys against Sam Houston State before wearing purple for their next non-conference home game.

Mississippi State

Only planned for the season-opener, the Bulldogs have decided to wear their 100th anniversary uniforms again this season, although the specific games are unknown.


Head coach Gary Pinkel revealed the Tigers will wear mostly anthracite for their game at Toledo.


The Volunteers have added a tri-star decal to the back of their helmets, a nod to the state flag.
