Buffaloes Go With Traditional Look For Thursday Night’s Matchup

The blackout game in Boulder will have a gold feel to it on the field

All the fans in the stands will be wearing black, but CU will have a little more color than that on the field on Thursday night, as the Buffs are wearing their traditional look of gold helmets, black jersey, and gold pants. This comes as a bit of a surprise, at least to this writer, as the blackout of the stands would signal a blackout of the uniforms. It’s hard to complain about one of the best combos in football, but all signs were pointing to gold-black-black, my favorite combo of all time and a more “black” look. Alas, it’s not happening, and CU will still look fly facing the Bruins, who will be wearing white and gold (most likely).
