The uniform pays tribute to the U.S military and its debut will kick off ASU's week-long "Salute to Service."
Pat Tillman, an ASU alumni and safety for the Arizona Cardinals, put his professional football career on hold in 2002 when he enlisted in the U.S. Army with his brother, Kevin.
He died in Afghanistan in 2004, while serving with the 75th Ranger Regiment.
The uniform was designed to replicate the uniforms worn by Tillman and the team he led to the 1997 Rose Bowl after an undefeated season.
It has a "Arizona State" moniker on the chest, a PT-42 badge on the collar, and period-specific Sparky logos.
"We are incredibly humbled and honored to have to opportunity to partner with Marie Tillman, the Pat Tillman Foundation, and adidas to create these uniforms that pay homage to Pat and the service of all of our active and retired military members," Sun Devil Football head coach Todd Graham said. "We preach the value of passion and character to our players and no one embodies those qualities more than Pat Tillman. I’m proud as a Sun Devil football coach but I’m also proud as an American that we can suit up and pay tribute to the hero that was Pat."
Sun Devil Athletics and Adidas also worked with the NCAA in receiving special permission to have Tillman's name emblazoned on the back of every player's jersey for the game.
Kickoff is at 7:30 at Sun Devil Stadium.
