Utah has tweaked its uniforms for 2014.
The Utes unveiled the new duds at media day on Wednesday. Here's a picture of the new uniform.
And if you're wondering what's different than last year's jersey, here's what it looked like.
The white piping across the front of the jersey below the shoulders is gone and there's now a pattern on the side of the shoulders. There's also matching undershirt sleeves and leg sleeves below the pants.
QB Travis Wilson is also wearing a new helmet this season. He suffered a concussion last year and scans afterward revealed an intracranial artery injury. However, coach Kyle Whittingham said that Wilson isn't wearing the helmet because of his injury. Rather, the school got one of the helmets and it fit Wilson.

It's the Riddell SpeedFlex helmet, which we wrote about in April. Throughout the spring, 30 college teams were testing out the helmet.
