Georgia will not be wearing any alternative uniforms this year, per A.D. Greg McGarity. Stand down, Georgia fans.

Earlier: Several of college football’s premier programs will be sporting a black uniform this fall, according to a report.
According to Andrew Lind, a uniform connoisseur and reporter for the Tidewater News, the black Nike uniform T-shirts being seen in stores are the design for an alternate uniform that will be worn this fall.
Alabama, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Georgia, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon and Texas are the teams that will wear one.

Here they are:
We’ve seen these T-shirts before. They’re popping up in Nike stores across the country. And a majority of these teams typically wear an alternate jersey at some point during the season. It is pretty surprising to see teams like Alabama and Texas on this list, though.
Nike and the schools, unsurprisingly, have yet to comment on the idea of these being worn as jerseys.
