The Allstate Sugar Bowl is more than a week away but Head Coach June Jones has already called his first play. And, this one is for the fans.
Jones is calling for a “White Out” in the UH sections and is asking all UH fans in attendance at the Superdome to wear a white shirt. Georgia Head Coach Mark Richt has called for Bulldog fans to wear black shirts.
“This is something that both the UH and Georgia fans can have some fun with and it will be unique to our game,” Jones said. “UH fans can wear green shirts around New Orleans during the week to show their UH pride and then sport a white one at the bowl game.”
The UH football team has been designated as the visiting team and will wear its white jerseys. Georgia, designated the home team, will wear black jerseys.
“We’re in favor of whatever will help motivate our team and rally our fans,” Herman Frazier, UH athletics director, said. “This is an incredible opportunity for our entire state, so we want everyone to enjoy themselves and revel in our team’s success.”
