S. Carolina told to lose special jerseys

BY foxsports • October 1, 2011

No. 10 South Carolina did not wear its specially designed Wounded Warrior Project jerseys against Auburn after Southeastern Conference officials said the uniform numbers were difficult to read.

Apparel maker Under Armour said Saturday that league officials expressed concern about the visibility of the numerals on the jerseys. The Gamecocks wore the special jerseys in warmups before switching back to their standard home uniforms.

The Wounded Warrior jerseys will be auctioned off with the funds raised going to the project's ''Believe in Heroes'' campaign.

Similar jerseys are to be worn by Texas Tech on Nov. 12 and South Florida on Nov. 19.
