Although those unis look pretty sweet, I think LSU is a lot like Georgia Tech...they only wear colored jerseys when they are forced to.... I go to all of Tech's home games and I think they've only worn their Gold jerseys three times in four years that I know of  ('00 home game vs. Wake Forest; '02 home game vs. Wake Forest and '03 home game vs. Auburn)

Correct me if I am wrong please

BTW, here is Tech's seldom used gold jersey:

And here is the preferred home and road jersey:

Yeah, I guess it's like the Cowboys; they have to be playing another team that wears white at home to wear the colored jerseys. But in the NCAA those teams are even more rare than in the NFL, so that's prolly why we never see em. Personally, I think both teams' white home unis are pretty boring.

this actually brings me to another question, why was USC, as the home team in the Rose Bowl, wearing their road white jerseys?

i'm thinking it was because Michigan was the designated 'home' team(could be wrong). actually felt like a rose bowl for the first time in a couple years.

Bowls other than the Championship don't use the seedings to determine home/away. It rotates year to year. This year the Pac-10 team was designated as the visitor. If you saw the beginning of the game, USC also called the coin flip, as is custom for the visitor.

here is my argument for people who say jersey colors should always be lighter than pant colors for colored jerseys. These would look mch better IMO with say black pants.

Tradition. In the 40's, 50's, and 60's, most college teams only wore one jersey. Most teams wore a team color jersey forr both home and away, but LSU always wore white. The tradition has remained.

Actually, NCAA rules mandate that the home team wears a dark jersey while the road team wears a white jersey. In order to wear white at home, LSU (and Georgia Tech,) need to get permission from the visiting team.

A few years ago, Vanderbilt refused to allow LSU to wear white at home, so LSU broke out yellow jerseys instead of wearing their purples.

And a couple of years ago, Florida wound up wearing white in the Swamp vs. LSU.

I believe LSU has primarily worn the white jerseys at home for only the past six years or so. I remember them wearing their purple jerseys all the time when I was growing up.

Just talked to one of our football administrators here at UT. He said the NCAA has no such rule. The home team can elect to wear whatever combination they want, provided they inform the visiting team within seven days of the game. The rule is the same for every sport.

The exception is postseason games in sports other than football. In postseason games other than football, the home team must wear a white or light colored jersey, unless they request special permission to wear a "lucky" jersey.
