Both teams in colored uniforms

Seeing South Carolina and Vandy got me thinking, how frequently does this happen? I remember seeing photographs (before my time, of course). I seem to recall Army and Southern Miss playing in the Humanitarian Bowl one year, with USM wearing gold and Army wearing black. Then, of course, there was

Sometimes it did occur in NFL Thanksgiving games in the past couple of years. UCF and Nevada also wore colored jerseys (gold and navy blue respectively) in last years Hawaii Bowl. Oth than that it doesnt happen often, although as long as the colors aren't confusing, I wouldn't mind seeing it more often.

I am pretty sure there was a monday night game in the 1980s--Green Bay at Denver. Green Vs. Orange. It was snowing pretty hard.

The Packers were in white that night. It was in 1984. I've seen the NFL Films footage on that.

I found a picture of that LSU helmet at a different angle, and it actually has five stripes of what appear to be equal size. They're actually in the same sequence (purple-gold-white-gold-purple), but the stripes are all the same size.

I'll offer up the recent Georgia Tech and Notre Dame football game. BOTH teams had bright gold helmets and although ND wore white shirts with gold pants and GT gold unis with white pants it looked like one big gold mess. I can't imagine how much of a pain in the arse it must have been to be a QB that day.

I could be wrong about this, but didn't the Saints and Vikings play a game a few years ago where the Saints wore their gold jerseys (possibly the only time ever) and the Vikings wore purple? I think it was the 2002 game where the Vikings won 32-31 on a 2 point conversion with 5 seconds left.

I think you are correct. Same goes for the time the Pats played the Cowboys and the Pats wore their silver alts and Cowboys wore their blues.

USM did wear vegas gold jerseys that day...however, their opponent wasn't Army, it was Idaho.

I wanna say I remember the Carolina Panthers and San Francisco 49ers both wearing colored jerseys the first year Carolina was in the league. It must have been when the 9ers hosted Carolina, becuase Ive found a picture of the game in Carolina with the Panthers wearing white. Either that or as a young 49ers fan who liked the new red unifors was happy to see them being worn on the road.

Don't quote me on this, but I swear in a pre-season game around the time of both teams modifying their unis, the Bucs wore red and the Ravens wore purple. I'm going to investigate this more.

Edit: Don't know what brain cells I destroyed, but according to the Raven's website, they've never played TB in pre-season.
