Boston College To Use Red Bandana-Style Uniforms For The Rest Of The Season

Many programs wore new uniforms over the weekend for September 11 remembrance, but the most noteworthy were probably the "red bandana"-styled ones worn by Boston College during its massive upset of USC on Saturday night. The uniforms honored Boston College alumnus Welles Crowther, who passed away on September 11 after saving the lives of numerous other people in the South Tower while wearing the now-famous red bandana. Now, head coach Steve Addazio says that the Eagles will be incorporating the pattern into their uniforms for the rest of the year.

This isn't a huge surprise, considering how monumental the USC win was for the program, and Welles Crowther is certainly someone who can be recognized for an entire season.

Boston College hosts Maine this weekend. We'll be interested to see which red bandana aspects of the uniforms stick around from last weekend.
