Purdue Boilermakers Unveil New Gold Reunion Jerseys – SportsLogos.Net
The Purdue football program announced Friday night that it will wear new gold jerseys in Saturday’s return game against Minnesota, which begins at 12 p.m. ET on the Big Ten Network.
The Boilermakers introduced the gold jerseys as their primary home look with the switch from Champion to Nike before the 2002 season. They went 5-3 in the jerseys – which featured white numbers outlined in black and a collar and cuffs. blacks – losing to Wake Forest, Michigan and Ohio State by nine points combined.
Purdue updated the gold jersey in 2003 to include black numbers with a white outline and a new black and white collar and cuff design. The Boilermakers then lost the season opener to Bowling Green, 27-26, and the program has not worn a gold jersey since.
This year’s gold jerseys follow the same pattern as Purdue’s gray alternate jersey, with a cowcatcher pattern across the shoulders and a contrasting shoulder yoke. It also includes black numbers surrounded by gold.
The uniform is complete with the Purdue black helmet with the railroad band in the center and the gold “P” movement on both sides, as well as black pants.
