ASU’s uniforms vs. Eastern Michigan feature iridescent maroon helmets

Sep 16, 2022, 7:49 AM

Arizona State football rolled out a traditional maroon and gold uniform combination in the season opener against Northern Arizona, but there’s a twist to returning with a similar look in the Sun Devils’ third game of the year.

Gold pants and maroon tops will be capped by iridescent maroon helmets. Hit by light, they shine with a gold tint.

The helmets also feature an enlarged pitchfork logo in gold on one side and player numbers on the other.

Assistant coordinator of equipment operations Ryan Barker tweeted that the gold facemask that accompanies the maroon helmet is a first-time thing.

Arizona State enters the game coming off a road loss to the Oklahoma State Cowboys that followed the season-opening home win over NAU.

Eastern Michigan also split its first two games, beating Eastern Kentucky before losing to the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns.

The Sun Devils kick off against the Eagles at 8 p.m. MST on Pac-12 Networks. It will air on ESPN 620 AM and 98.7 FM HD-2.
