Tennessee released its uniform combination for the Orange Bowl.

The Volunteers will be wearing the program’s signature orange jerseys with white pants. This will be a rare Orange Bowl matchup that features 2 programs that wear orange. Clemson traditionally wears orange for each home game and some road games.

Even though the shades of orange are different, Clemson will likely wear all-white uniforms with orange as the secondary color for the Orange Bowl. It would have been unique to see Tennessee and Clemson wear orange, but it would have been difficult to distinguish the different shades of orange.

Tennessee will get to show off its orange uniform in the bowl game. Outside of the shared uniform color, Clemson and Tennessee will play in one of the most notable bowl games. The 2 teams were competing for bids to the College Football Playoff, but Tennessee and Clemson fell to South Carolina in consecutive weeks in Week 12 and Week 13. The losses to South Carolina ended both team’s chances of reaching the Playoff.

Although this will not be a Playoff game, it is one of the most anticipated games of the bowl season. The winner of this game will be able to carry the momentum from the win for the rest of the offseason.

Kickoff for the Orange Bowl will happen Friday at 8 p.m. ET.
