Virginia is going retro for its game against Louisiana Tech on Sept. 29.

The university announced the Cavaliers would be sporting throwback uniforms from the 1968 team that went 7-3, but featured ACC Player of the Year Frank Quayle.

Quayle, a halfback, will be honored at halftime of the game for his time as a player and as a broadcaster for 29 years. During his career, Quayle rushed for 2,695 yards and caught 83 passes for 1,145 yards.

The uniforms are a lot of fun. They're classy and they do have a true throwback feel. The helmet has sort of a BYU look to it with the "V" encapsulated by the oval. The helmets also will feature a special decal as a salute to Quayle.

Even the game programs will be retro with a cover that is a tribute to the era.
