PULLMAN – Those anthracite jerseys the Washington State football team wears occasionally will still look pretty sharp in 2017. And now you’ll be able to read the numbers, too.
The Cougars unveiled a number of new uniform combinations on Wednesday, including anthracite jerseys with white numbers that will contrast with the darker base layer. In the past, the Cougars have used a dark crimson color that can make the numbers and player names difficult to read from the stands.
In a press release, Washington State athletic director Bill Moos said, “Thanks to our tremendous partnership with Nike, we are able to take advantage of new technologies with these uniforms that will benefit our players’ performance,” said Washington State Director of Athletics Bill Moos. “At the same time they are appealing to our fans and recruits and stay true to the traditions of Washington State Athletics.”
