Tennessee will once again wear “Smokey Grey” uniforms when the team faces Georgia on Saturday, the school announced on Monday.

The Vols have worn their alternative gray uniforms before when they were dressed by Adidas, but Saturday will be the debut of the version made by Nike. Tennessee made the switch from Adidas in July when it signed an eight-year, $35 million apparel contract with Nike.

The uniforms pay tribute to the region, as the Great Smoky Mountain National Park is located in Tennessee.

Saturday also marks the first time the Vols will sport gray helmets with a smoky mountain design.

Tennessee (2–3) will host the Georgia Bulldogs (4–1) in Knoxville, Tenn. for a 3:30 p.m. ET game.
