Most college football players won’t have the chance to celebrate Halloween this weekend as the holiday is on Saturday and most will be on the football field. Two Conference USA teams are doing all they can to make their players a part of the festivities.
According to ESPN’s Brett McMurphy, the UTEP Miners received permission from the NCAA to wear all orange on the road as they take on the Southern Miss Golden Eagles, who will wear all black, on Saturday. This is going to make for one spooky look on the field in Hattiesburg.

While the two teams aren’t the most relevant throughout the country and it certainly won’t be the most anticipated game, it will certainly have a cool look. Southern Miss released a statement about the game on Tuesday.
Southern Miss and UTEP will get into the Halloween spirit here this Saturday when the two schools get together for their Conference USA West Division football meeting.
In the spirit of the day, the Golden Eagles will wear their traditional home black uniforms, while UTEP will sport all orange to represent Halloween’s two primary colors.
This is going to be a fun game.
