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.
In the meantime, that doesn't stop friends and foes alike from sounding off with their opinion. Reviews are looking fairly positive across the board though, which should please those faithful to the ol' Blue & Gold
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.
That unveiling featured a "modest" celebration, as reported by Craig Meyer of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, one that included: a live DJ, a strobe light show and a runway for players to display their new uniforms.
