Montana Grizzlies to wear return 2001 National Championship uniforms – SportsLogos.Net

Montana’s football program will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its 2001 national championship by wearing homecoming uniforms in Saturday’s game against Sacramento State.

The uniforms are almost identical replicas of what the Grizzlies wore that season, when they beat Furman to finish 15-1 and win their second and most recent national title.

The brown jersey uses a mesh-like material and features silver numbers with a white drop shadow, a small Montana wordmark on the chest, vintage placket logos on the sleeves, and a silver trim on the collar and cuffs.

The helmet is gray with a brown goggle and the “Griz” script on both sides, as are the pants, which feature the same wordmark on the right hip opposite a brown Nike Swoosh.

The only differences from the original design are the twill tackle numbers, which were screen printed in 2001; the collar and cuffs, which weren’t as thick at the time; and the script “Griz”, which was previously on the left hip.

There is also a condition patch on the right shoulder, opposite a white Nike Swoosh, which reads “2001 National Champions”.

More than 50 members of that team, including former head coach Joe Glenn, are expected to be in attendance for Saturday’s game against the Hornets, which starts at 3 p.m. ET and will air locally on ABC.
