Tennessee’s dark mode uniforms are making its 2022 season debut on Saturday against Kentucky with a new twist. After wearing white helmets with the alternate uniforms a season ago, the Vols added a black helmet to compliment the uniform combination.
Tennessee added the dark mode uniforms to the arsenal last season under Josh Heupel. The black alternate uniforms made their debut in a blowout win over South Carolina. The Vols wore them again in their November loss to No. 1 Georgia.
The Vols have worn their traditional home uniforms in rivalry games this season but haven’t bee afraid to wear alternate uniforms either. Tennessee wore its Smokey Grey uniforms in its win at LSU and is now breaking out the dark mode uniforms Halloween weekend.
