West Virginia football will unveil new versions of gray uniforms in the game against Iowa State, this Saturday at Milan Puskar Stadium, in Morgantown. The news dropped on Twitter this evening with a stirring video harkening coal miners of yesteryear.

Known to some as the “dark and dusty” look, the uniform combo features the new gray jersey and pants. The jersey sets navy numbers with gray trim against a medium gray shirt, with navy collar and sleeve cuffs. The pants are solid gray with a navy Flying WV on the right hip. It’s finished off with the traditional navy blue helmets with the gold Flying WV.

This will be the first time a WVU football team has worn gray since playing TCU in 2012, but that combo was gray helmets, gold jerseys, gray pants. WVU fell 38-39 in OT. WVU donned gray jerseys against Maryland in 2012, a 31-21 win wearing all gray.
