The Oregon State football program will be one of many that break out some throwback uniforms for homecoming weekend. The Beavers unveiled their new look this week ahead of their return to the field on Saturday, Oct. 20 when they take on the Cal Golden Bears.
For their throwback look, Oregon State will be bringing back the iconic Benny Beaver logo.
Along with the Benny Beaver logo, the throwback uniforms will feature old school shoulder stripes, a Benny Beaver logo on the neck, and “Oregon State” written in script on the pants.
Here was the special unveiling of the throwback look:
You didn't think we were stopping at just a helmet, did you?
