The Tennessee Vols‘ matchup against the Clemson Tigers in the Orange Bowl has already generated plenty of talk about how “orange” the game will be.

Both teams primarily wear orange, but one team will have to wear a little less orange than the other team. Otherwise, things will get confusing — even though Clemson and Tennessee wear two different shades of orange.

On Wednesday, during a joint press conference in Miami with Vols head coach Josh Heupel, Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said he believes his team is going to wear orange pants and white jerseys for the game.

The Tigers are the home team for the matchup, so they get first choice on uniforms.

Heupel said he isn’t sure what his team will choose to wear against Clemson, but he noted that there should be “plenty of orange”.

The Tigers’ decision to wear white jerseys means we could see Tennessee going with a traditional look. Orange jerseys with white pants — the Vols’ default home uniforms — are a possibility.

This was the uniform combination the last time Tennessee and Clemson played (in the 2003 Peach Bowl). It could be the same look we get in the Orange Bowl later this month.

Tennessee could also choose to go with an alternate look. Black uniforms or smokey grey uniforms might be an option. But with so much being made about the “orange-ness” of the Orange Bowl, I would bet on a more traditional look for the Vols.
