Photo: Appalachian State will have new uniforms this fall


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. 

This photo was tweeted over the weekend by Mountaineers running backs coach Chris Foster. I'd say it's a definite improvement over their previous look.

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?
