Word on the interweb is that Virginia Tech will sport orange uniforms for Thursday's home game against North Carolina on ESPN.
Thursday is the Hokies' "Orange Effect" game for which fans are encouraged to make the entire stadium orange. The team wore an orange top picture above for last year's narrow "Orange Effect" win over Georgia Tech.
These were the first and only all-orange uniforms I'm aware of from Tech's 1993 home loss against arch-rival Virginia.
After that loss, assistant coach Billy Hite said the Hokies would never wear orange uniforms again.
Here are some other notable orange looks.
Former Hokie Eddie Royal sometimes dons the Broncos orange alternates.
Syracuse has these all-orange throwback deals which are kind of awful really.
You may remember these Nike disasters from 2005. I think the Hokies' version looks a little better, but both poor choices.
I apologize for the poor sizing with these pictures. Tomorrow, it's quick picks and Hokie football.
