The University of Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns wore these special alternate uniforms during their blackout game on November 17th, 2012. They beat Western Kentucky 31-27 that night in style. The Fleur De Lis symbol was worn bold and proud by the football team as you can see in the photos below.

Whatever you think of it, it’s impressive that they got permission to do it. The front numbers are so tiny (smaller, I think, than the ones Nebraska, Wisconsin and Michigan used earlier that season) and are positioned so high that they’re almost TV numbers. And instead of using a big chest letter, like those other three uniforms, they used a big chest symbol. It’s more similar to a hockey jersey than a football jersey. If the NCAA is okay with this, it opens up a whole new frontier in football jersey design, because the chest is suddenly a blank canvas.

The Ragin’ Cajuns also introduced something new with these uniforms — they used french words for Unity, Pride, Fight and Believe on the back of the jerseys instead of the player’s last name. They also did it with all lowercase lettering as you can see in one of the photos below:
