The Georgia Bulldogs will wear black jerseys during the 2015 football season, according to a report by Andrew Lind of the Tidewater News.

Lind stated that UGA is one of at least four SEC schools that will wear alternate jerseys this season. Georgia’s black jersey design will reportedly be based on this new Nike t-shirt pictured below:

The t-shirt is new for the 2015 football season and is already available to buy online.

Georgia hasn’t worn an alternate jersey since the 2011 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game when they fell to Boise State 35-21 while wearing the highly controversial Nike Pro Combat uniforms. The last time the Bulldogs sported black jerseys was in 2008 when Alabama came to Athens and rolled to a 41-30 victory.

Although jerseys and uniforms don’t have a bearing on the score of a game, Georgia has a 2-1 record when wearing black jerseys, the two wins coming over Auburn in 2007 and Hawaii in the 2008 Sugar Bowl.

Last season after Georgia defeated Kentucky, fans started calling for a blackout for the Auburn game and expressed desire for the team to wear black jerseys.

Head coach Mark Richt addressed that request, saying there was “no chance” and that players wanting to wear black was “wishful thinking.”

Richt had to address black jersey calls during the 2013 season also. Quarterback Aaron Murray wanted the team to wear black jerseys vs. Kentucky, but Mark Richt would later say “If I had black jerseys to give them, I’d have them wear them. We just don’t have them.”

So will Georgia wear black jerseys in 2015 or is it wishful thinking again? I guess we’ll find out as the season gets closer.

    I guess I will not get my hopes that Ga. not wear black jerseys or pants as a full colored uniforms during their playing time, so will have to grin and bear it.. To me black is a Death Color, and I find since I have been watching them play (since 1979) and they wore black or partially black they have lost most games.. Anyway, I just don’t like black As for me I would rather they wear their traditional Home & Away Uniforms; but I guess they will go with the trend.. JUST GO GET EM DAWGS!!

    These will be under the uniform. Nike does not dictate what UGA or any other college wears. UGA will not go away from the iconic red top and silver britches.

      Hell I say wear em against Bama. Keep it hush hush. Don’t tell the public. Hand black G t-shirts out at the admissions gate. It’s not really cool unless it’s a complete surprise. Unless it’s a day game. Too hot to wear black in early October for a day game. Hell as much as those tickets are gonna be the least they could do is include a T-shirt.

    AJC called ADGM after this came out and ADGM said UGA would not wear alternative jerseys this year.
