The UCF football program unveiled a very cool new uniform set on Thursday night in partnership with Nike for its annual Space Game.

This year’s uniform featured a “Citronaut” — an early unofficial mascot — logo on the top front of the jersey. The school has a history of working with the United States’ space program, and previously had featured the face of the moon inside the UFC logo on their helmets.

Now, fans of the program can bid on full uniforms (helmet, jersey, pants) from Thursday night’s Space Game, starting on Saturday morning.

In the school’s release, it announced that “Many of the uniforms available will be game-worn, so some slight wear and tear from their use in Thursday’s 52-40 victory over Temple may be noticeable.”

The uniforms won’t be available until after the season ends, however, because the helmets will be re-used throughout the remainder of the season.
