Fashion makeover

When Pitt and West Virginia meet at Heinz Field in the annual Backyard Brawl Nov. 26, each team will be sporting new Nike Pro Combat uniforms. Pitt's uniforms are designed to represent Pittsbrugh's connection to the steel industry, while West Virginia's represent the state's coal industry.

Pitt and West Virginia are among 10 schools that will wear the new-style uniforms in at least one game this season. The other teams are Alabama, Boise State, Florida, Miami, Ohio State, Oregon State, Texas Christian and Virginia Tech.

The new unfiorms are supposed to be 37 percent lighter than regular uniforms.
