ASU Football unveils home uniform combinations for 2013 SeasonPosted: Updated:
A Maroon Monsoon, the annual Blackout, and fan and student voting highlight the 2013 Arizona State University football team's home uniform combinations.
The third annual Blackout game will be held Sept. 14 against Wisconsin and the second Maroon Monsoon will be on Sept. 28 against USC.
For the second consecutive season, fans and ASU students will each have the opportunity to choose the team's uniform combinations for the Oct. 12 game against Colorado and the Nov. 16 contest against Oregon State, respectively. Voting for both the fans and students will be conducted via the web and social media.
"Community engagement and outreach is a large component of the Sun Devil Way and we are always striving to create memorable experiences for our fans," Vice President for University Athletics Steve Patterson said. "We want our supporters to be proud of what they are watching on the field and uniforms are a part of that final product."
Fans are encouraged to wear gold to the other five home games, including the Sept. 5 season opener against Sacramento State, Oct. 12 against Colorado, Oct. 19 against Washington, Nov. 16 against Oregon State and Nov. 30 against Arizona.
In conjunction with azcentral sports, fans will be given the option of three uniform combinations for the Oct. 12 matchup against Colorado and voting will run for two weeks from Sept. 16-30.
ASU students will also be able to pick from three different uniform combinations for the Nov. 16 game and voting will run for two weeks from Oct. 21-Nov. 4.
"Our fans and students play a huge part in our success and we're only going to go as far as they can help take us," head football coach Todd Graham said. "We set the school record last season for student attendance and we want to keep that momentum going. Allowing them to decide what we wear on Saturdays is another chance for us to bring them even closer to our program."
The Devils will wear traditional home uniforms (gold helmets, maroon jerseys, gold pants) for the season opener on Sept. 5 against Sacramento State and for Homecoming on Oct. 19 against Washington.
The team's seniors will choose the uniforms for the season finale and senior day on Nov. 30 against Arizona.
Single-game tickets for the season opener go on sale Aug. 15 and currently the only way to get tickets to all Sun Devil Football home games is to purchase a season ticket or mini plan.
