UBC Thunderbirds unveil new badass blackout jerseys (PHOTOS)

Oct 1 2017, 1:11 am

And just like that, the UBC Thunderbirds have the best uniforms in the city.

The T-Birds, who usually wear UBC’s traditional colours of blue and gold, unveiled ‘blackout’ jerseys on Friday. The black and gold uniforms are the first third jerseys in the 93-year history of the team.

And they look badass.

Unfortunately for UBC, the new look didn’t help them on the football field. The T-Birds (3-2) lost 31-17 to the Canada West leading Calgary Dinos (5-0) in front ofĀ 2,985 fans at Thunderbird Stadium.

UBC’s next two games are on the road against Saskatchewan and Manitoba, before returning home to play Regina on October 28.
