It’s official. The Tigers will wear orange facemasks against the Ole Miss Rebels for Saturday’s game.

It will be the first time Auburn has worn orange facemasks since the 1984 Sugar Bowl vs Michigan. Doug Barfield introduced the colored bars in 1979, according to Auburn Uniforms on Instagram.

The Tigers experimented with white facemasks earlier this season when they traveled up to Happy Valley to play Penn State in their annual ‘Whiteout’ game. Auburn head coach Bryan Harsin seems to be intrigued by experimenting with Auburn’s uniforms, possibly as a recruiting tactic. There have been very minimal changes made this season, but there could be some more changes made for specific games in the future under Harsin.

No. 18 Auburn kicks off against No. 10 Ole Miss tomorrow night at 6 p.m. central on ESPN.
