NASHVILLE (AP) — Vanderbilt football players will wear nine uniform variations this season with black, gold and white options for both jerseys and pants.
The two-color stripe, standard on Commodore pants from 2002 to 2006, has been removed, replaced with a Nike “swoosh” and the team’s official two-color “Star V” logo patch stitched on either hip.
The two-color stripe formerly on jersey sleeves also has been eliminated, replaced with a one-inch solid black stripe.
Making the jersey unique to Vanderbilt is the inclusion of the color “Star V” logo into a “home plate” design in the front collar.
The same logo also has been added to the back of each jersey above the number, making Vanderbilt one of only a few teams to feature such a design.
In other team news, Terence Jeffers, who started 21 of 25 games while at Connecticut, has enrolled at Vanderbilt and is joining the Commodores’ football team despite having to sit out the 2008 season.
Vanderbilt coach Bobby Johnson confirmed Wednesday that Jeffers is on campus and has worked hard to join the team.
“I look forward to him being a great contributor on the practice field next season and a valuable player on Saturdays starting in 2009,” Johnson said.
He started every game in 2007 and led all Huskies receivers with 44 catches, helping UConn share the Big East title.
and a spot in the Meineke Car Care Bowl.
