LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Under Armour announced Monday at Texas Tech and the University of Utah its second annual customized uniforms to honor U.S. Armed Forces in conjunction with the Wounded Warrior Project.
The games will take place on November 6th -Texas Tech taking the field against University of Missouri, [currently undefeated] and the University of Utah competing against top ranked TCU, [also currently undefeated]. University of Maryland will also be outfitted for their November 20th game against top 20 Florida State.
Each team will replace their last names on their jerseys with a core value embellishment - Duty, Honor, Courage, Commitment, Integrity, Country, or Service. Texas Tech is the official Under Armour Freedom game, and each Red Raider will have "Freedom" on the back of their jersey as a tribute the brave men and women that the initiative supports.
The custom game day jerseys will be auctioned off on each of the Universities' websites the following Monday of each game with a 100% of the proceeds going to Wounded Warrior Project. Under Armour school-specific fan gear will be on sale at university bookstores and www.underarmour.com with a portion of the proceeds going to Wounded Warrior Project as well.
As part of UA Freedom, the collegiate football games that support Wounded Warrior Project demonstrate the ongoing commitment to honor our nation's wounded service members through monetary and product donations.
