When the University of Idaho revealed silver football uniform additions in July, many wondered when the Vandals would debut the color on the field.
It turns out Idaho fans didn’t have to wait very long, as the team took the field for Thursday’s season opener in silver tops and bottoms with matte gold helmets.
The silver additions to the uniform by the athletic department proved to be a fan favorite among students and alumni. With silver being one of the official school colors, it is refreshing to see a Kibbie Dome uniform scheme that is not entirely based on black and gold.
While an all-silver look would have been the icing on the cake, the gold helmet complements the gold lettering of the jerseys while providing a nod to the past.
Overall, this look is a solid uniform combination for the program and one that is certain to be utilized again in the future.
