Cougar Tracks: BYU goes with a "blackout" for the Beavers

"PROVO, Utah (Oct. 1, 2012) BYU announced today the home football game versus Oregon State on Saturday, Oct. 13, will be a blackout on the field and in the stands, not the television broadcast.

For the first time in the modern era the Cougars will wear a black uniform, specially created by Nike. Fans are being encouraged to support the team by wearing black to the game that will air regionally on ABC at 1:30 pm MT (3:30 pm ET).

"The uniform was designed to have the same striping and maintain an element of tradition, while also creating a fun atmosphere for the team and the fans," said BYU head coach Bronco Mendenhall. "Our plan is to wear the uniforms for this one game."

The Athletic Department plans to sell the uniforms with proceeds going back into the football program. The uniforms will first be offered to members of the Cougar Club, followed by the general public if some are still available.

In addition, the BYU Bookstore has created a special blackout shirt that will be available in the stadium after the Utah State game and also at the Bookstore beginning Oct. 6.

Visit Facebook.com/BYUfootball for more photos of the uniforms."
