The Arizona State unveiled a new ‘desert fuel’ alternate uniform on Monday in an effort to expand the school’s image and honor the state’s heritage as a top copper producing state at the same time.

According to the release on the school’s official website, “Arizona State University, which became the first school in Arizona in 2012 to use its team uniforms to honor the state’s long history as a top copper-producing state, is also the first college football program in the state to incorporate copper into all aspects of the uniform.”
This is the team’s 10 different helmet unveiled by the school in the last three years and the Sun Devils now have four jersey options and five for their pants.
“We wanted to pay homage to this great state while keeping the team’s look consistent, head coach Todd Graham said. We are one of the top few teams in the nation with as many looks and combinations as we have, and this plays an important role in building a national fanbase and molding Arizona State University into a household name.”
Alternate uniforms have been a big recruiting tool to attract players and draw attention to your program and quarterback Taylor Kelly believes the fan base will love the new look as well.
“As players, we love to look like one of a kind on the field. Uniforms are important because they have a huge impact on recruiting and our fan base, and this new looks is awesome and very unique in a number of ways, especially the gray and copper chrome facemask.”
No date is set for the team to wear the new uniform but it will be an option that will be considered later this season.
What do you think of the new look?
