The Boston College football team will be throwing it back to the “Era of Doug Flutie” when it take the field for its homecoming matchup with the Louisville Cardinals on Saturday, Sept. 13. at BC Alumni Stadium. Under Armour unveiled the throwback uniforms that take inspiration from the 1980s when Flutie won the 1984 Heisman Trophy and United Press International Player of the Year.
To this day, Flutie remains the NCAA’s all-time leader for passing yardage.
Boston College previously honored Flutie with their throwback uniform in the 2015 Shamrock Series against Notre Dame at Fenway Park.
“Doug Flutie is a special figure in the BC community,” – Nick Billiris, Senior Design Director of Team Sports at Under Armour, said in a statement. “His Heisman-winning season was played long before current students were around but, whether you lived it or just heard about it, BC fans think of it as a defining moment for the program.
“These throwback jerseys closely resemble those worn during the Flutie era and we hope it serves as a fond recall of that unbelievable play in an unforgettable season.”
The most notable differences between the throwbacks and the current Boston College uniforms are the stripes and number style, and a darker gold.
