Penn State Football Bringing Back Throwback Uniforms For 2019 Homecoming Game

Penn State football will wear its “Generations of Greatness” uniforms during this year’s Homecoming game against Purdue on October 5.

The team played this video on Beaver Stadium’s scoreboards at halftime of the 2019 Blue-White game to make the announcement.

The uniforms feature a number of different elements from uniforms worn in the past, including numbers on the helmets, gray facemasks, and white cleats. Additionally, the pants of the uniform feature a blue stripe, and the jersey’s sleeves end with a white stripe.

Penn State debuted the alternate uniforms on September 30, 2017 against Indiana. They apparently brought the team some luck — Saquon Barkley returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown and DaeSean Hamilton scored a hat trick as the Nittany Lions cruised to a 45-14 victory.

On top of the different uniforms, the Beaver Stadium end zones looked a bit different for the Indiana game. They featured the classic diamond design used from the 1960s to the early 1980s during the game, but it’s unclear whether or not those will make a return this year.
