It's Week 3 of the college football season, and the uniform combinations are starting to heat up.
The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers unveiled a clean helmet colorway for their road matchup against the No. 6 Ohio State Buckeyes. Multiple schools are suiting up in uniforms for a special cause or sharing new all-black looks for a crowd blackout. The Louisville Cardinals became the latest to break out a new icy white uniform.

A renewed rivalry game warrants a uniform change. The Maryland Terrapins welcome the Virginia Cavaliers at home Saturday with a new all-black jersey. The new additions were unveiled in August and will debut this weekend. The two teams haven't squared off since 2013 in a rivalry that dates back to 1919.
Uniforms for a cause
The Boston College Eagles will once again don their Red Bandana uniform in honor of Eagles alum Welles Crowther, a volunteer fireman who died on Sept. 11, 2001, while rescuing people from the South Tower of the World Trade Center. Crowther saved as many as 18 people that day while breathing with the use of a cloth, becoming known as the "Man with the Red Bandana," according to Boston College.
The UAB Blazers are rocking all-black uniforms for the first time since 2006. The new look is to support the Smile-A-Mile organization with 100 patients being represented.
