Penn Quakers (1995-99)

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.

The home uniform with white pants ...

... and the monochrome version, just before that became trendy around football.

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