Arizona Wildcats to Wear Dick Tomey Era Helmets Against ASU?

Arizona will wear its blue tops and white pants when it plays at ASU on Saturday night, marking the first time the Wildcats will wear their home jerseys in Tempe.

While the Wildcats will not wear throwback uniforms to the glory years of the 1990’s under the late Dick Tomey, a video released by the school indicates the team will wear a helmet similar from that era with a red and blue stripe on top with a blue facemask.

ASU will wear its traditional gold helmet with the “Sparky” logo with maroon tops and gold pants. Following the lead of UCLA and USC in their rivalry game, the Wildcats and Sun Devils will both wear their home uniforms.

Here is a look at Arizona’s uniform combinations taking from Arizona’s video on Twitter:
