    USD Football: Coyotes unveils Dakota Days uniforms

    VERMILLION, S.D.—The South Dakota football team will debut red jerseys with chrome numbers and a chrome football helmet when the Coyotes host Northern Iowa at 3 p.m. Saturday inside the DakotaDome.

    The new look runs in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of Dakota Days – University of South Dakota’s annual homecoming celebration.

    The uniforms were revealed to the football team Sunday evening. The chrome helmets were introduced publicly online through social media and on Wednesday and the red jerseys were introduced Thursday.

    “The uniforms represent the complete history of Coyote football combining elements of the past, present and future,” said USD athletic director David Herbster. “Gray pants were worn in the 1940s while our pants in the 1990s featured red and white stripes down the pant leg. Red jerseys with ‘Coyotes’ across the chest have been used on and off throughout our history. The chrome helmets represent the future while paying homage to the past when the Coyotes wore both gray and white helmets.

    “The red and white helmet stripes pay tribute to the seasons when either red or white stripes were seen on the helmets. The helmet logo and shoulders of the jersey reflect the current logo and branding of Coyote Athletics.”

    South Dakota will don a new look to the home crowd for the second game in a row. The Coyotes wore throwback pants, their traditional home red uniforms and a red helmet with no decals in their 28-21 win against No. 23 Northern Arizona back on Sept. 20.
