The Bulldogs stuck with what works in their road series at Alabama, wearing the same uniform sequence as they did at Florida and LSU, again taking 2 out of 3 in an SEC road series. The Bulldogs wore the Maroon MS jersey with white pants on Thursday, and the Gray Pinstripes in both games of the Saturday doubleheader.
In a Tuesday night surprise, the Bulldogs busted out brand new jerseys in their Governor's Cup win over Ole Miss. A variation of the classic White 85 jerseys that the Bulldogs last wore in 2014, these jerseys closely resemble the black 85 pullovers that were introduced last season. The white pullovers with white numbers and 85 script with maroon outlines were paired with white pants and the regular maroon hat.
The inverted numbers and wordmark seem a bit off; make the numbers and wordmark maroon and these are the best jerseys that the Bulldogs have worn all year. As they are, these are still a solid alternate look and are much, much better than any black or camo variation.
The Bulldogs wore the same uniform combinations at LSU as they did on their last road trip to Florida. They won in the Maroon MS jersey with white pants on Friday and in the Gray Pinstripes on Saturday. On Sunday, they suffered their first loss in the Gray Pinstripes.
In their 14 inning midweek win over ULM at MGM Park in Biloxi, the Bulldogs wore the Maroon MS jersey with the maroon hat and white pants.
Super Bulldog weekend was not so super in 2016. The Bulldogs gave up 10 runs in each game, surrendering a 3 game sweep to Texas A&M. On Friday and Sunday, the Bulldogs wore the standard Maroon MS jersey with white pants. On Saturday, they did do something a little different, debuting a new hat and therefore a new uni combo. Hats with a maroon back and bill and a white front panel with a maroon MS logo have been on sale for a few weeks; they made their on-field debut Saturday along with the White MS jerseys.
The Bulldogs wore the White MS uniforms in the midweek for the first time in their win over Memphis. This was a much better midweek uniform choice than the usual camo or black; I still have to wonder why the Maroon 85s haven't shown up yet.
Friday was a normal day uniform wise. The Bulldogs wore the Maroon MS jersey with white pants in their first Friday night loss of the year. On Saturday, however, they busted out a brand-new uniform that was an instant fan-favorite. The debut of the gray pinstripe uniforms that had been somewhat unveiled before the season was a success as the Bulldogs took down the #1 Gators. The uniforms were very popular on social media and for good reason; they really look sharp. On Sunday, the Bulldogs went with the Gray Pinstripes again and proceeded to pull out a series win on the road over the #1 team in the country. Safe to say that we'll be seeing them again soon.
In their midweek tune-up vs UT Martin, the Bulldogs wore digi camo for the first time in three weeks; this time the talent difference between the two teams was enough to make up for the bad choice of uniform.
In week 3 of SEC play, the Bulldogs again saw great pitching performances lead to wins on Friday and Saturday, and a lack of Sunday pitching lead to an inability to complete the sweep. Uniform wise, the Bulldogs wore white pants all weekend, with the Maroon MS jersey on Friday, White MS jersey on Saturday, and, disappointingly, the Black 85 jersey on Sunday that created an interesting uni match-up with Ole Miss's powder blues.
