UConn football will have a slightly different look next season as the team announced they will be bringing back the classic “Block C” logo for six games next season.
The logo was used by UConn football from 2003 to 2012, when the school rebranded and all sports were brought under the same logo. Edsall is excited to get back to the look that defined his teams during his first tenure with the Huskies.
“I’ve been wanting that to happen. I think it’s great. I think it symbolizes a winning tradition. It symbolizes winning. It symbolizes one of the best eras that they’ve had here at UConn football,” Edsall said. “What’s significant with the Block C is it incorporates the State of Connecticut. Anytime you can build on tradition it’s something you should do.”
UConn will have four different helmets they can wear: Blue and white helmets with Block C decals and the same colors, but with the Husky logo decal.
Edsall said the uniform combinations are already decided and will be released to fans in the near future.
“I learned my lesson at Maryland when we had all those things. My first two years, they wanted us to pick and I said ‘No, someone else decides.’ [Marketing and licensing] put it together so we’ll know ahead of time, instead of waiting until Monday of the game, what we’re going to wear.”
The Huskies will continue to wear their current uniforms — which have been in use the 2015 season — before they get new threads for the 2019 season, according to Edsall.
