After testing out its blue jerseys last Saturday, Georgia Tech will wear white uniforms Saturday against Virginia. Virginia coach Mike London sent out a Twitter message Thursday that the Cavaliers have chosen to wear navy helmets and jerseys as the Jackets will wear white.
The uniforms are believed to be slightly different than the white outfits worn in the opener against Virginia Tech. The team practiced in its traditional gold helmets this week after wearing the white version prior to the first two games, which it then wore in the game.
Also, quarterback Tevin Washington will take his turn wearing the No. 40 jersey in honor of former linebacker Julian Burnett, according to a Twitter message from Tech spokesman Dean Buchan. It was Washington’s idea for team members to rotate the jersey to pay tribute to Burnett, who suffered a career-ending neck injury in the Sun Bowl. So far, nose tackle T.J. Barnes and cornerback Rod Sweeting have worn No. 40. Starting seniors Izaan Cross (defensive end) and Orwin Smith (A-back) will also get an opportunity to wear it, after which non-seniors will have an chance.
