NC State will wear throwbacks to honor 50th anniversary of Carter-Finley Stadium

NC State has become much more creative with its uniforms since Dave Doeren arrived, and that’s been more than welcome. On Wednesday night, the school unveiled the football team’s latest alternates: a throwback to the diamond logo era that spanned the Dick Sheridan and Mike O’Cain tenures.

Oct. 8 is the 50th anniversary of NC State’s first game at Carter-Finley. That also happens to be the weekend that Notre Dame comes to town. Safe to say that game is going to be festive. And maybe a little surreal seeing the diamond back on the uniform.

That'll be the only game these threads make an appearance, I assume. I mean unless NC State wins that game; then the Pack will have to wear those uniforms at home the rest of the year.

It’s a solid, clean look, though I’ve always wanted to see State bring back the helmets it wore during the mid-to-late 1960s. Well, there’s always the 100-year anniversary.
