Bill Cosby joined Temple football players and Hooter the owl in unveiling the team's new cherry and white uniforms.

Francesca DePasquale and Timmy Kelly, who will sing the “National Anthem’ and “God Bless America,” respectively, during the season opener, were there along with Temple student-athletes Brian Sanford and Anthony Ferla, who wore the new uniforms.

The jerseys are solid cherry or white, with collar and sleeve trim in the opposite requisite color. The collars will be trimmed with diamonds to reference Temple founder Russell H. Conwell's "Acres of Diamonds" lecture. The Temple "T" will be featured at the "V" of the collar. As per Golden's directive last season, player names will not be on the jersey backs. The pants will resemble those worn during the Wayne Hardin Era from 1970 to 1982, featuring a white base with cherry blocks down the legs.
