Pittsburgh Panthers release new alternate uniforms

The Pittsburgh football team took to Twitter on Tuesday to announce the arrival of the school's new throwback uniforms. The rollout comes just under three weeks ahead of the Panthers season opener against the Villanova Wildcats (Sept. 3 at Heinz Field). 

Pitt also released a video accompaniment to Tuesday's jersey unveiling, complete with highlights from yesteryear.

The throwback jerseys won't make their appearance until Oct. 8 in the school's Homecoming Game against Georgia Tech.

Back in May, the Panthers football team got another uniform makeover when the school decided to debut a new script logo on the squad's jerseys.
