Buffalo will welcome defending Big 12 champions Baylor to UB Stadium for a nationally televised matchup on September 12. To give the team an extra boost for the Friday night matchup, the Bulls will wear an all-black uniform combination for the first time and the program is asking fans to participate in a stadium-wide “blackout.”

The school unveiled the new look, including the brand new helmets, in a video on Tuesday.

Per a release from the school, the Bulls will wear the all-black uniforms for “select games” during the 2014 campaign, but the Baylor game will be the debut.

Buffalo is coming off an 8-5 season and the second bowl game appearance in program history in 2013. Baylor’s explosive offense will be an immensely difficult test for the Bulls, but at least the team will look good as it tries to stop the Bears.
