Iowa unveils throwback uniforms for Iowa State game

Iowa Uniforms

Iowa Athletics

It was known that Iowa would wear throwback uniforms for its annual rivalry game vs. Iowa State this season, but now we know what the duds will look like. Iowa SID Matt Weitzel confirmed Tuesday that the Hawkeyes will wear uniforms to commemorate the 1921-22 back-to-back Big Ten championship teams that went a combined 14-0. See the uniform in this post.

Want to see what the uniform looks like on a mannequin? There was this picture tweeted out, too:

The throwbacks look nice, especially in the official Iowa Athletics photo, which makes the gold look a lot brighter and better. As for the uniform in the Twitter picture, Wietzel said: “That looks like it, but not sure if it’s the lighting or not, but the gold looks a little different.”

So, let’s just assume it is the lighting in the Twitter picture, because it’s clear from the Iowa Athletics photo that the gold is gold, not that awful St. Louis Rams new-century gold. And that’s a definite plus.

Iowa hosts Iowa State at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, September 8. You can watch the game live on BTN/BTN2Go. web editor Brent Yarina writes the Clothes Call features. Send him your Big Ten fashion tips here, find all of his work here and follow him on Twitter at @BTNBrentYarina.
