It’s that time of year again: ASU’s Oct. 12 home game vs. Colorado has been designated as the “Fans’ Choice” game. The Sun Devil faithful will have an opportunity to choose the helmet/jersey/pant combination their team will wear against the Buffaloes at Sun Devil Stadium.
The winning uniform combination will be made public during a special Saturday edition of azcentral Sports Tonight on Oct. 5, immediately after the ASU-Notre Dame game on Channel 12. This will be the third meeting between the Sun Devils and Fighting Irish. The two programs are scheduled to play again in Tempe in 2014.
ASU rolled out its popular uniform combinations as part of an overall athletic rebranding prior to the 2011 season. Black and white uniform items were added to the existing maroon and gold color scheme, along with the new “fork” logo.
The Fans’ Choice game is a part of an annual rotation of uniform combos for the Sun Devil football team. Other standard sets include the Black Out, Maroon Monsoon and the traditional maroon and gold look, which has been an ASU staple for the season opener for the last three years.
Sun Devil fans can vote for their favorite uniform until Sept. 30 on the azcentral.com website. The kick-off time of the game is also expected to be announced on Sept. 30.
