Being a senior has its privileges.
Some of the seniors on the Arizona Wildcats have a council that picks out the team’s uniform combinations — important stuff in today’s college football world — and that group includes quarterback B.J. Denker.
The Cats have opted to wear their copper helmets in Friday’s opener against NAU. It will be the second time Arizona has worn the copper lids, which were debuted in a 38-35 home loss to Oregon State last season.
“We’re doing copper because it’s an in-state game and we’re representing our copper state,” Denker said.
The Wildcats will wear blue jerseys and blue pants with the copper helmets, as they last season, when they never wore the same uniform combination twice. Arizona has four helmets — white, blue, red, copper — and a new uniform style for this season.
