Indiana football to wear ‘90s throwback uniforms during the 2022 road games


Indiana football will wear throwback uniforms on the road during the 2022 season, according to an Indiana Football Twitter post Friday. The uniforms are inspired by former head coach Bill Mallory from the 1990s. 

The uniforms will look similar to what the Hoosiers wore against the University of Cincinnati in the ranked matchup on Sept. 18 last year in Bloomington.

The uniform will be white jersey shirt color matched with red wording and numbering on the front and back. The pants will be red with a white stripe outlined with black going down the sides of each thigh.

The helmet will look familiar to Hoosier fans — red with a block “I” on each side along with a white stripe down the middle. The same style helmet was worn against Cincinnati last year. Hoosier players will wear red cleats and gloves along with the jersey. 

The uniforms, were derived from what the Indiana Football team wore during the Bill Mallory era of the team. An era where the Hoosiers went to six bowl games winning two of them. Mallory is the winningest football head coach in Indiana Football history.  

The first away game on Indiana’s schedule is against No. 24 ranked Cincinnati on Sept. 24 at Nippert Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio.
