There aren’t many teams that have the red and black uniform combinations of Georgia and Cincinnati. So the opportunity to provide fans with a perfect contrast was too good to pass up.

Plenty of fans and media quickly picked up on the unique color combination in the Peach Bowl in Atlanta.

Earlier in the week, Georgia coach Kirby Smart suggested that Gary Stokan, CEO and president of Peach Bowl, Inc., made the suggestion.

“In regards to the black jerseys, that was probably more so Gary’s request. We’re obliged,” Smart said. “Those kids like wearing those. I don’t know exactly the whole deal, but I think it has something to do with both teams wearing their home jerseys.”

Cincinnati is the designated home team for this bowl game, so it had the first option to wear its darker color uniforms. But Stokan has noted that both teams wearing colors looks better on television.

The Bulldogs played only three home games this season, and previously wore the black jerseys once, in a 31-24 win at Sanford Stadium over Mississippi State.

Here’s a sampling of early reaction to the uniforms:
