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.

Many people ask me, “Do you do rentals.” The short answer is yes.
"Michelle Mojica became our real estate agent in 2008, when she represented my husband and I as the buyers on our first "second home / vacation rental" purchase in Avondale, Arizona (in the Coldwater Creek development). Over 4 years I've come to know Michelle and found that she is very smart, patient, responsive, cheerful, professional, and an overall likable lady. We went back to Michelle, and her husband, Juan, when we were ready to sell the same Avondale house in 2012. Even though the real estate market had changed over the 4 years we owned it and we didn't know just how long it could take to sell it, Michelle amazed us with a record breaking one week escrow that opened on a Monday and closed on Friday, all in the same week! And, it was the hottest time of the year in Arizona and difficult for us to get away from our jobs to make the 5 hour drive from our primary residence in California, and Michelle and Juan flawlessly handled the transaction entirely by phone, fax and email. It was incredible how easy they made it for us as the sellers, as well as the buyers and their agent. It took Michelle's knowledge, all her contacts, and her professional mannerism, to get the job done. We can't say enough good things about our experiences with Michelle and her husband Juan. I would highly recommend either or both as a team to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the greater Phoenix area. Nice and caring people!"
