Arkansas State was penalized twice for their ugly uniforms

Traditionally in football the home team wears a color jersey while the away team wears a white jersey. When the Arkansas State Red Wolves lined up to take on the Auburn Tigers they appear to have been slightly confused as to where they were based on the hideous uniforms they put on.

Arkansas State took the field with black pants, a dark grey jersey and a black helmet, definitely not the light colors an away team is supposed to wear.

The game’s officials hit them with a 15 yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty to start the game for wearing the dark uniforms. After half-time the team came back out with the same uniforms on and were hit with another 15 yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty to start the half.

I can picture that locker room conversation at halftime.

“Hey coach should we change our uniforms?”

“No, they already penalized us, what else can they do? Just keep them on.”

Then boom, another 15 yard penalty.

Auburn went on to win the game 38-9 and Arkansas State will forever go down in history as one of the ugliest uniforms.
