I can't find photos, but the only time the Tennessee Oilers played the pewter Bucs was in November 1998. Did get some blurry screenshots from a video of a long TD run by Steve McNair. The interesting part is that they wore white pants this game as well.

The white-on-white combo was the only set worn by the Tennessee Oilers in their lame-duck season under that name in 1998.

Just to be clear: Are you asserting they only wore white over white in 1998? If so, I believe that's right. Or are you saying the whole time they were known as the Tennessee Oilers? That was for two seasons, and in 1997, they wore blue twice. Once against the Dolphins, and once at the Cowboys.

I just wanted to make sure I understood what you meant.

I was clarifying that the Oilers wore white-on-white only in their last season under that name in 1998. Sorry for the confusion. It's too bad, those blue jerseys were beauties.

Got it. And no kidding, those were excellent uniforms.

I was thinking the same thing, i didnt realize the Bucs wore the white pants that early into the history of the red and pewter.
