Wesley Snipes said it best in "Passenger 57."
"Always bet on black."
It seems like a college football-wide memo was sent out. This is the week for all-black uniforms. So, programs all over the country are wearing similar uniforms.

Honoring Pat Tillman
— Sun Devil Athletics (@TheSunDevils) October 24, 2017
At Arizona State, saluting the service of military service people takes on a different meaning. Tillman was an All-American at ASU and played on the Sun Devils' 1996 Rose Bowl team.
He famously left his NFL career with the Arizona Cardinals after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and joined the Army Rangers. He was killed in action in 2004.
The Sun Devils have honored Tillman's legacy in a variety of ways, and Saturday, will add to that with special desert camouflage-themed uniforms. The gloves feature the "PT 42" monogram and the backs of the helmets show the names of all Arizona State players or coaches who have served in the military.
