Penn State has one of the most classic looks in all of college football. On Sept. 30, the Lions will put a retro twist on their traditional uniforms.
The Lions revealed these uniforms for the B1G home opener against Indiana:

As said in the video, the Lions will use original block numbers from the 1950s and 1960s. The jerseys will feature a patch with the signature Lion shrine from the class of 1940, as well as a patch for the 1959 Liberty Bowl champion team.
Perhaps the biggest twist is the helmets, which will have numbers on them like the Penn State helmets did during the 1950s and into the 1970s. The grey face mask will resemble the one the Lions wore from the 1950s into the 1980s.
The white pants have the original blue stripe from the 1950s and 1960s while the blue-stripe socks and white cleats will pay homage to the 1970s.
The kickoff time and TV network for the Sept. 30 game have yet to be determined.
