THROWBACK UNIFORM: ISU Unveils Iowa Game Jerseys
When the Cyclones take the field at Jack Trice Stadium for the Iowa-Iowa State game, they will not wear last season’s uniform.
The Cyclones will wear throwbacks from the 1920s instead.
The uniform is similar to the one worn by Jack Trice, the first African-American player in Iowa State history.
Trice played two games, and died from injuries suffered against Minnesota in 1923.
Head coach Paul Rhoads says his players are pumped to wear the uniforms.
Fans can buy the jerseys off the players’ backs in an auction after the game that takes place September 14th.
The only previous time Iowa State wore throwbacks, Gene Chizik coached the Cyclones to a stunning upset of Iowa, 15-13 in 2007.
That day, the Clones wore uniforms commemorating the 30 year anniversary of ISU’s Peach Bowl appearance.
Many fans liked those uniforms better than the regular ones worn that season.
The Hawkeyes wore throwbacks last year for the big game at Kinnick Stadium. Iowa State edged Iowa 9 to 6 in a game that no one would rank among the series’ best.
