The Name on the Back

Penn State announced that its uniforms will feature player names on the back of its jerseys for the first time in school history. Once the Nittany Lions run out on the field this weekend, USC football will be the only FBS school never to have had surnames on the back of its jerseys.

By being traditional, USC football has become unique…

We don’t play for the name on the back of the jersey because there is no name on the back of the jersey.

We only have numbers so our moms can recognize us from the stands.
