This season, the Utah Utes football team will sport a jersey that commemorates a ship with connections to the Beehive State that was heavily used during World War II.

On Tuesday morning, the Utes unveiled their “USS SALT LAKE CITY” uniforms that they will wear on Nov. 20 at home against the Oregon Ducks.

The uniform is gray with black numbering, and the lettering “USS SALT LAKE CITY” is written across the chest.

The ship was mostly used in the Pacific during World War II, including at Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima and Okinawa.
