The Georgia Tech football program is set to take the field with some brand new jerseys this weekend against the Clemson Tigers. On Monday, Sept. 17, the Yellow Jackets unveiled their alternate uniforms for the 2018 season which feature a tribute to the Yellow Jackets’ 1990 national championship team.
The uniforms will feature the traditional gold helmets, with blue jerseys and white pants.
From the official release:
While inspired by the 1990 national champs, the uniforms integrate the innovative look and feel that adidas has brought to Georgia Tech this fall, utilizing the same state-of-the-art materials and design elements of the Yellow Jackets’ previously unveiled 2018 uniforms.
“When we went about designing our first alternate uniform for Georgia Tech, we wanted to highlight the great football tradition at Tech,” said Cam Collins, adidas senior production manager for football apparel. “What better way to do that than by paying homage to the most recent Yellow Jackets football team to hoist the national championship trophy while also embracing the innovative style and collaborative spirit of adidas and Georgia Tech?”
Georgia Tech and Clemson are set to square off at Bobby Dodd Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 22. Kickoff between the Yellow Jackets and Tigers is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
