It’s becoming more and more of a tradition for NCAA football teams to wear some type of uniform that pays tribute to the Armed Forces.

Last year, we saw the North Carolina Tar Heels wear a red, white and blue logo on their Carolina Blue helmet, something they’ve decided to do again this year – however – unlike last year, their entire uniform will be red, white and blue.

Following that thought will be the Virginia Tech Hokies, who will wear an orange ‘camo’ (their words, not mine) jersey and helmet for Military Appreciation Day.

The school announced the uniform this weekend.

Per Phil Hecken:

Where one would actually need orange ‘camo’, I’m not sure. Maybe it’s a secret the Hokies are planning to unleash next time they play the Syracuse Orangemen. WHAT TEAM DO YOU THROW TO?!?!!?

Either way, they’re definitely different, though thumbs up to Virginia Tech for paying tribute, even if they’re not the most wonderful looking things.
