|Two Heisman candidates take to the field Saturday night in Starkville in |
the biggest match-up in Auburn - Mississippi state history
Although, Miss State certainly has had their fare share of alternate uniforms since 2012. The Bulldogs have worn a bulldog head helmet off and on since the 2012 "Snow Bowl" versus Texas A&M. That first helmet was, well, snowy. It was an all white uniform with white/chrome accents. The helmet logo was barely noticeable, more so in the harsh sunlight. That same year Miss State broke out new gold accented uniforms for the annual Egg Bowl versus Ole Miss.
The following year, State broke out another new Bulldog helmet, this time being featured on their normal matte maroon helmet. These were only worn twice during the 2013 season though. They also wore another gold accent uniform for the Egg Bowl, but paired them with a gold chrome helmet.

is forgotten with the Georgia and Alabama games.

Auburn will more than likely be wearing their traditional white uniforms for this game, barring some crazy situation. It'll be interesting to see what accessories Auburn breaks out. The lone road game thus far was K-State, and the Tigers wore the white shooting sleeves. Saturday night against LSU, and more on this in a bit, Auburn broke out new orange sleeves and gloves. We'll just have to see what happens. I'd prefer an all white look to the orange accents. The orange accessories just look so good with the blue jerseys.
Here's to a good looking game, and more importantly, a helluva match-up!!
After years of frustrating losses, it was fun to woop up on LSU. It was nice to see the offense click on all cylinders, with all the issues they've had getting things going the past few weeks.
The uniform match-up was great as usual. Nothing new on LSU's part, except that they placed a pink ribbon on the helmets (which is how it should be done, not with pink gloves, towels, etc...but that's a different story).
Auburn, on the other hand, wore some new orange gloves. The gloves didn't have a noticeable palm pattern, unlike the recent pairs of gloves. Also, new orange sleeves were worn. These were different than the orange sleeves from last year. Last year's sleeves were actually basketball shooting sleeves - they had the elbow padding, as well as the striping on the elbows. These were just plain orange compression sleeves. It was nice to see orange sleeves, since they contrasted better with the blue jerseys than the white sleeves, but I really loved the shooting sleeves with the striping. Also of note, Trovon Reed was wearing a long-sleeved undershirt that featured the BCS Championship patch from last season, which was really odd.
