Alternate Uniform Concepts for Tennessee Football

The “Air Show Uniforms” (1980s Home and Away Throwback)

  • Based on the uniform styles from the 1980’s. 
  • Named after the nickname given to the offensive air raid under VFL QB Tony Robinson during his time on the Hill. 
  • Home and away uniforms have double sleeve stripes, the Volstar logo on the collar and hip, Clarendon NOB font, faux-mesh jersey numbers, double striped pants and socks, and white/orange cleats. 
  • The away uniform showcases the orange pants. This uniform combination was seen primarily when Tennessee upset Alabama in 1983 and 1985. 
  • Home uniform is based on the primary look from that decade, but it was nationally seen when the Vols defeated the No. 1 Auburn Tigers in 1985. Also featured in the 1985 Sugar Bowl victory over Miami.
