Kentucky will wear an alternate away uniform design when it faces Tennessee on the road Saturday.

UK will suit up in blue Nike Hyper Elite jerseys and shorts as one of 12 select institutions chosen to wear commemorative uniforms on a one-time basis this season.

This marks the second time this season UK has participated in wearing an alternate uniform, as the Wildcats also opened the 2012-13 campaign against Maryland in commemorative home white uniforms.

A UK interlocking logo, inspired by Kentucky's home court, appears on the jersey's center chest. Nike dubs the look a "piece of home away from home to wear with pride."

The back nameplate features iconic references to the team's mascot and home crowd. The team is also slated to wear a Hyper Elite warm-up hoodie for the first time as well.

Gonzaga, Michigan State, Baylor, Villanova, Southern California, Ohio State and North Carolina have revealed the new designs as well.

* Stanford Cardinal (Women): Feb. 15
* Georgetown Hoyas: Feb. 15
* Kentucky Wildcats: Feb. 16
* Duke Blue Devils: Feb. 16
* Texas Longhorns: Feb. 16
* Connecticut Huskies (Women): March 4

The UK at Tennessee game is set for a 1 p.m. ET tip and will air live on CBS.
