College football programs like to pair new beginnings with new uniforms. A new coach or, in App State's case, a new conference feels like a great time to break in new uniforms.
After winning three national championships at the FCS level, the Mountaineers will end their four-decade affiliation with the Southern Conference and join FBS's Sun Belt Conference, beginning officially on July 1.
It's hard to tell from this angle, but it appears App State will also have a new helmet this fall.
Appalachian State will open their first FBS season at Michigan on Aug. 30. Gee, I wonder if those schools have ever played each other?
