Braelon Allen's request breaks Wisconsin football's uniform tradition

New Mexico St Wisconsin Football

Wisconsin's Braelon Allen runs for a touchdown against New Mexico State during their game Saturday at Camp Randall.

Fans can thank tailback Braelon Allen for the Badgers’ different look against the Aggies.

The Wisconsin football team wore its red home jerseys with red pants for the first time in years after a request Allen made to the team’s uniform committee.

“It’s cool to be able to wear something different,” Allen said. “We’re real traditional, so to be able to throw some different things in there is nice.”

Chryst — who hasn’t been a proponent of mixing and matching uniforms — laughed when asked if he had to have his arm twisted to approve the red-on-red look.

“We got some guys, and I feel good with this, they're in charge of it,” Chryst said. “I don't care as long as they play well.”
