    Tennessee announced its uniform combination for Saturday night’s matchup at South Carolina. The Vols are debuting a brand new uniform combination as Tennessee will wear orange helmets for the first time ever.

    Tennessee is pairing the orange helmets with white jerseys and white pants.

    It’s the seventh different uniform combination Tennessee has worn in 11 games this season. The Vols are 4-0 in their classic home uniforms, 2-0 in their orange jerseys, orange pants and white helmets, 1-0 in their “dark mode” uniforms, 1-0 in their “Smokey Grey” uniforms, 1-0 in their all white uniforms and 0-1 in their white helmets, white jerseys and orange pants.

    Wearing different uniforms has been a staple of Josh Heupel’s two seasons as Tennessee’s head coach. The Vols debut black uniforms last season and wore orange pants more than they have in recent years.

    This season, Heupel and Tennessee brought back the Smokey Grey uniforms from the Butch Jones tenure, added black helmets to go with the “dark mode” uniforms and even wore Summit Blue accessories to honor the 50th anniversary of Title IX on homecoming.

    Tennessee is looking to improve to 10-1 on the season Saturday at South Carolina. The Vols opened as 19-point favorites against the Gamecocks as they look to win their fourth straight game over their SEC east foe.

    Kick off from Williams-Brice Stadium is at 7 p.m. ET. Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit and Holly Rowe are on the call for ESPN.
