Arizona Wildcats to wear matte helmets, all blue uniforms vs. Utah

Arizona’s matte helmets make their debut

The Arizona Wildcats will be debuting their matte blue helmets on Friday vs. the Utah Utes, it was announced Thursday.

They will be paired with a blue jersey and blue pants, making it all blue everything for the Wildcats this weekend at Arizona Stadium.

Arizona is 9-5 since 2005 when wearing all blue, and it wore this uniform the last time it played Utah at home, when UA upset the No. 10 Utes 37-30 in double overtime.

The matte helmets are unique in not only their finish, but also because the Arizona Block A is overlaid in red, which is rarely seen and also why reviews from fans were mixed when the design was unveiled. I think it’s pretty awesome and fits well with this uniform design.

And what will Utah be wearing Friday you ask? (Even if you didn’t ask, I am going to tell you anyway since this is super important.)

Red, white, and red.

You can see both uniforms...err...teams in action Friday at 7:30 p.m. MST on FOX Sports 1.
