Uniform fanatics should note that while officials from the U. and Ute Indian Tribe touted plans for a tribe-themed jersey when they signed a new memorandum of understanding in April, the release from the U. does not mention jerseys, and instead says the Utes will wear a helmet emblazoned with the tribal seal for the Nov. 22 game against Arizona. Utah Sports Information Director Liz Abel further clarified that the Utes will not have new helmets, and that the seal will be a sticker.
As part of the Native American Heritage Awareness promotion, the Ute Honor Guard will also present the national colors and the Ute tribe's Pow Wow Committee will arrange a halftime performance.
At Saturday's Fan Fest and at the U. Campus Store and Red Zone stores, the U. will sell a $20 T-shirt that includes a graphic designed by a Ute artist, and all proceeds will go to Ute Indian scholarships and youth programs.
