Kickoff Week uniforms: Clearing out white before Labor Day

Our weekly tour of the country's uniforms is back. Uni Watch hit on the biggest changes for the season, but which teams are rolling out unique threads this weekend?

Uniforms and fashion conventions have never aligned ... until now. College football teams appear to be following the no-white-after-Labor Day rule as several schools are going with all-white combinations on the holiday weekend.

National title contender Clemson opens the season at Auburn (9 p.m. ET, ESPN) in an orange-white-white uni.

Missouri heads to Morgantown to face West Virginia (more on the Mountaineers below) in what the Tigers are calling their "icy" uniform, which we saw at the end of last season.

Miami (Ohio) will try to steal a win at Iowa (3:30 p.m. ET, ESPNU) in white from helmet to cleats.

UCF is dubbing its home opener against South Carolina State "First Frost" and is asking fans to wear white to match the team. Similarly, Tulsa will wear white at home against San Jose State.

SMU also joined the party Friday afternoon with a dramatic GIF reveal.


It's been 125 years since West Virginia started playing football, and the Mountaineers are celebrating with a special helmet that looks similar to throwback helmets the Mountaineers have worn in the past. The white-gold-white combo calls back to teams from the 1960s.


Everyone loves a color-on-color matchup, and the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game is taking this neutral field opportunity to make it happen with North Carolina and Georgia (5:30 p.m. ET, ESPN).


And for Sunday night's clash in Austin (7:30 p.m. ET, ABC) Notre Dame will trot out some new Under Armour cleats, while Texas will trot out Bevo XV, complete with a new uniform.
