Head coach Butch Jones and the University of Tennessee unveiled football uniforms Thursday the Vols will wear in 2013.

The uniforms include an alternate uniform in what is being called Smokey Gray. Coach Jones said it would be worn at one home game, but said that game has not been named.

Adidas, the company behind the new uniforms, posted a video of the new gear on YouTube before a presentation was made to media. It generated controversy, as some fans complained in social media that it was a departure from Tennessee's traditional orange and white.

Jones insisted the alternate uniform was in keeping with tradition, pointing out the team wore gray in 1914 when Tennessee played an undefeated 9-0 season.

The primary home and road uniforms worn by the Vols will feature traditional colors with some new features.

The primary home uniform includes an orange jersey with white pants. The primary road jersey will be a white jersey with orange pants.

Changes include a checkerboard pattern on the numbers of the white jerseys and a Power T on the back. Tennessee is written above the numbers on the front.

UT's first home game is August 31 against Austin Peay.
