BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The UB athletics program has undergone a face lift since announcing a new logo earlier this spring.
After a new basketball court was installed, it was the football program’s turn for a fresh new look. On Tuesday afternoon the athletics department unveiled their new jerseys for the upcoming season, including a new black alternate option. They also gave the media a glimpse of the new turf being installed at the football stadium.
Head coach Lance Leipold knows the fresh threads and new field will help attract fans and recruits.
“A year ago we were excited about the newness of everything but there were a lot of things we didn’t know…and a lot of things we didn’t know we didn’t know,” the head coach said with a smile. “Now we have a lot better understanding of what we need to do on a daily basis in the program and what we need to do recruiting and what it will take on Saturday’s for us to be competitive in the conference.”
