Photos: UCF Unveils Incredible 'Space Game' Uniform

UCF unveils its Space Game uniform on Twitter.

Oregon, Boise State, Ohio State and Notre Dame are among the college football programs renown for their unique uniforms. But the UCF Knights are unveiling a new uniform for their now-annual 'Space Game' that is simply incredible.

In a video released by the team, UCF Football revealed their space-themed uniform with President John F. Kennedy's legendary "We choose to go to the moon" speech playing in the background.

JFK's speech adds incredible intensity as the uniform is put on display.

The helmet is blue-chrome with a moon pattern throughout it. On the front plate of the helmet is the school's 321 area code, while the back has an American flag and Neil Armstrong's famous "One small step for man" line printed.

Per the team's official website, the uniform pays tribute to its original founding as Florida Technological University. Its original mission was "supporting the growing United States space program at nearby Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station."

Every inch of the uniform pays tribute to the moon landing, which was launched from the Kennedy Space Center near the UCF campus.

The Citronaut, UCF's unofficial mascot from 1968 to 1969, is featured on the jersey. Constellations of important significance are printed on the numbers.

The uniform is set to be debuted at UCF's November 2 home game against Houston. It's the third straight year of the Space Game, but this year is definitely the most intense.

Is this the best uniform of the season?
