On Monday, Arizona State became the latest program to unveil a new alternate uniform for the upcoming season. Per a release from the program, the new look is supposed to symbolize the state of Arizona’s “long history as a top copper-producing state.”

The uniforms are “copper and anthracite” and were created to “expand the school’s image and honor the state’s heritage.” The final product makes for a pretty sharp look.

According to the release, the new helmet is the 10th new design in the last three seasons. This one features a copper chrome facemask and a copper stripe down the middle. With the addition of the jersey, the Sun Devils have four different jersey options and five different pants to choose from.

“We wanted to pay homage to this great state while keeping the team’s look consistent,” said head coach Todd Graham. “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.”

The school said that it has yet to choose a game in which the copper uniforms will make their debut.

“As players, we love to look like one of a kind on the field,” said redshirt senior quarterback Taylor Kelly. “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.”

ASU’s rival, Arizona, also honored the state’s copper history with an alternate helmet back in 2012. With the new look, Arizona State says it is the “first college football program in the state to incorporate copper into all aspects of the uniform.”

Coming off a 10-4 season, the Sun Devils’ 2014 campaign opens up against Weber State at home on August 28 – a Thursday night game.
