West Virginia University unveiled its new football uniforms ahead of Saturday's Gold-Blue spring game in Morgantown.
According to information from the athletic department, the Mountaineers will have a total of 27 different uniform combinations to choose from, including the introduction of a white helmet for the first time since 1979 and a gold helmet for the first time since 1978.
Three Nike jersey and pants colors -- blue, gold and white -- will be available.
Stitched inside the back collar of all three jerseys will be the West Virginia state motto, Montani Semper Liberi, which is Latin for "Mountaineers are Always Free." A canary image also will be stitched inside the front collar to represent West Virginia's coal heritage.
All three helmets will feature WVU's Flying WV logo and will have a matte, or flat, finish.
"Our players are really excited about the look of the three helmets," coach Dana Holgorsen said in a statement. "The blue, gold and white helmets go with all the uniform combos, and it will really give us a lot of options to choose from on game day."
WVU said that Holgorsen unveiled the new uniforms to the team on Friday morning, and the first public unveiling took place at a Mountaineer Athletic Club event Saturday. Holgorsen also revealed the new look on his Twitter earlier Saturday afternoon.
"Overall, I like our new look, and I know our players do too. It was time for a change, and I am glad that we could incorporate a little of the state's pride and history in this set of uniforms," Holgorsen said.
