Derek Carr and a Night in Navy, too?
That's part of the backdrop for Fresno State's Oct. 3 home football game, with the university — a day after announcing former star quarterback and Oakland Raiders rookie Carr would be the honorary captain — on Thursday releasing an early look at the navy blue uniforms the team will wear against San Diego State.
The mostly blue uniforms are accented with chrome helmets for the in-state rivalry matchup that Fresno State has dubbed the "Night in Navy."
It's the 54th meeting in the series between San Diego State and Fresno State and kicks off at 7 p.m. at Bulldog Stadium. CBS Sports Network will pick up the Friday night broadcast.
Fans are being encouraged to wear navy blue in an attempt to replicate last season's "blackout" game that saw a sold-out Bulldog Stadium covered in black to match special uniforms debuting that day.
The Bulldog Shop is selling Night in Navy T-shirts along with replica chrome helmets and chrome mini-helmets.
