UConn Huskies (1951)

This uniform is about as generic as it gets -- all navy at home, a white shirt and all-navy pants on the road. Luckily, there's a white stripe down the front to break up the monotony. Actually, this uni resembles Maine from this era, only without the kick-arse winged helmet. Or a reverse-image Penn State.

This was the Huskies' last uniform before they spiced it up with gold pants, a look they used well into the 1960s.

It's a good thing Maine's unis have the striped helmets and jerseys, or I'd still
be trying to figure out which team is which.
More Husky action.
Actually, UConn was 4-4 in 1951,
but "A .500 SEASON" doesn't quite have the same ring to it.

UConn had some far more exciting-looking uniforms in 1940s, which we'll have to delve into eventually (patience ...).
