The Bisons have introduced a new look for one of the most popular nights of the year.

Star Wars Night Episode VI is set for Saturday, June 22 at Coca-Cola Field, presented by Alfred State College. For 2013, the Bisons have introduced a new logo and a new set of specialized jerseys for the fan-favorite event.

The new Bisons Star Wars logo showcases Buster's acceptance into the Jedi order. After serving alongside Luke Skywalker and the Rebel Alliance since 2008, Buster has shown his dedication to restoring equality and peace in the galaxy. The Bisons new Star Wars logo features Buster wearing the classic Jedi robe while holding a blue lightsaber ready to battle whatever comes out of the Death Star behind him.

One of the most popular aspects of every Star Wars night is the game-worn jersey auction to benefit the American Heart Association. Each year, the Bisons players wear a different customized jersey, approved by Lucas Film Ltd., that are auctioned off during the game. This year's uniform is emblematic of the Sith's 2012 capture of Luke Skywalker, despite the best efforts of the Rebel Alliance. An "Imperial Cog" is branded on the back of the uniform with the Dark Side's trademark red look.
