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.
Never miss a local story.
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.
