The Houston Football program announced Sunday night that it will wear black uniforms with a new red helmet with a black decal for its Halloween game this Thursday night at 6 p.m. vs. USF in Reliant Stadium. The uniforms will be available for fans to bid on in an auction that begins Oct. 27 and runs through Nov. 10 on UHCougars.com. Proceeds from the auction will benefit Cougar Pride and the UH Alumni Association.
The uniforms and helmets were revealed to the surprised Houston team Sunday evening in its team meeting inside the Carl Lewis Auditorium.
“This will give us a unique look for a nationally televised Halloween game and it was a great surprise for our players,” said Houston head coach Tony Levine. “I want to thank Mack Rhoades, Darren Dunn and the Houston administration, Mike Pede and the UH Alumni Association and Jay Takach, Victor Ignatiev and our entire equipment operations department for making this possible.
“Thursday night will be an exciting night for both our players and our fans and it’s an important game for our program. Combined with the excitement on the field and the Halloween activities throughout the stadium, I would encourage our fans to fill the stands for a national TV audience.”
The black jerseys feature red numerals with a white outline and a red Houston across the chest. A red camouflage pattern graces the side vent panels on both sides.
“I’ve always wanted to wear a black jersey as an alternate. When I saw the first uniform that Coach Levine tricked us with, I was trying to hide my disappointment. But when I saw the final product I was ecstatic at the colors, the patterns and just how sharp they looked,” said junior defensive tackle Joey Mbu.
The helmets revealed for the game are a red helmet with black face masks and a flat black UH logo.
Game-worn black jerseys will be available with an opening bid at $175 each while two game-worn helmets will be up for bid starting at $250 each. One of the helmets will be autographed by all the Houston offensive players while the second helmet will be autographed by all of the defensive players.
Jerseys and helmets from the auctions will be shipped shortly after the completion of the regular season, on or around Dec. 1.
The alternate uniforms are a part of Houston’s Halloween promotions that also include costume contests, trick-or-treating, Halloween inflatables and student contests.
