Boston College Football Teases New Home Uniform Combo For Louisville Game

Maroon tops with new white pants?

Yesterday, the Boston College Football Equipment Room Twitter account hinted that the team would be mixing up the home uniform this week for tonight's ACC Atlantic Division showdown with Louisville.

Today, a few hours before game time, they offered up a glimpse of Tyler Murphy's locker.

No noticeable changes to either the jersey (traditional maroon tops) or helmet (gold helmet, single maroon stripe) from the above pic. I could be off here, but if you look to the far right, it appears the team will break out white pants with a red bandana-inspired stripe as opposed to the standard gold pants for tonight's game against Louisville.

Changing up the pants might not be the worst idea. The Eagles are just 1-3 on the year at home wearing the program's traditional maroon jersey-gold pants combination, with the lone win coming against FBS Maine (losses to Pitt, Colorado State and Clemson). BC is 1-0 wearing Welles Crowther-inspired threads, notching a 37-31 upset victory over then-9th ranked USC back on September 13.
