Utah Utes football debuts USS Salt Lake City uniforms

Aug 24, 2021, 9:45 AM

The Utah Utes and Under Armor announced new uniforms for the 2021 season dubbed the USS Salt Lake City uniforms, modeled in the release video by Arizona high school football product Solomon Enis.

The name behind the jersey comes from the USS Salt Lake City, a heavy cruiser that operated during World War II.

The jersey will feature the number 25, the original hull number for the ship that fought in more combat engagements than any other ship in the WWII Pacific Fleet.

The nickname “One Ship Fleet” will be featured on the back neckline of the jersey.

The base color is a dark grey with dazzle-camo accents, a resemblance of the patterns on the original ship.

Each uniform will feature a single battle star on the right shoulder. With 11 players on the field at a time, the Utes will signify the 11 different battle stars earned by the USS Salt Lake City during WWII.

One of the battles is depicted in immense detail on the helmet that was hand painted.

Utah will break out the new uniforms on Military Appreciation Night on Nov. 20 against the Oregon Ducks.
