BYU has upped its uniform game — particularly in the helmet department — as the 2022 season hits the midway mark.
One week after the Cougars unveiled a royal blue and black gradient helmet to accompany a black-out uniform look for their matchup against Notre Dame, BYU has another new look for its game this Saturday against Arkansas.
Against the Razorbacks, the Cougars’ helmet will be royal blue, include a white face mask and incorporate the Y logo outlined in white from last week’s helmet.
Here’s the big twist, though — these custom helmets will include a cougar head painted on one side, with a mountainside underneath the Y logo on the other side.
The rest of the BYU uniform will be a white jersey top and white pants, with royal blue trim.
The Cougars play Arkansas at 1:30 p.m. MDT on Saturday at LaVell Edwards Stadium.
How BYU fans reacted to the uniform combo for the Arkansas game
Here’s just a sampling of the reactions on Twitter to the latest uniform unveiling, with a few fans more concerned about the on-field production vs. the team’s look:

As if the players and coaches spend more than 5 minutes all season long on anything related to what uniforms they wear.
Not a fan! How about tradition? We don’t need to turn into Oregon. Maybe too much focus on how the team looks rather than on how it plays.— TheFoundingFather (@robhigginson01) October 10, 2022
