LSU will take the field against Mississippi State on Saturday night in “Gridiron Gold” throwback jerseys, the school announced on Monday.

The Tigers made the announcement with a video of running back Leonard Fournette modeling the gold jerseys with purple trim, and the white helmet with gold accents.

Fournette didn’t play on Saturday against Jacksonville State and was said to be uncertain for this week’s game.

The Tigers and Buldogs are set to kick off at 7 p.m. ET in Baton Rouge.
