This Penn uniform, a continuation of what was first introduced in 1992, is pretty much standard fare for the Quakers for the era, with only a few minor changes here and there -- although the lack of a "PENNSYLVANIA" word mark on the road jerseys it a little odd. Far odder is the red alternate jersey, which was worn once, to the best of my knowledge, and was never seen again. I wonder why it was dumped ... perhaps because the Quakers lost to Dartmouth the one time it was used?
|This isn't the most flattering of photos if you're a Penn fan. but here's|
the short-lived red alternate jersey from 1997. The photo ran in the Valley News,
my longtime place of employ. I miss the days when the AP shot photos of I-AA/FCS games.

Between 1981 and 2011, this was the only time Penn wore a red jersey until a new alternate debuted in '12.
