It used to be that NHL road teams wore their dark jersey's on the road and white jersey's at home. This tradition changed a few years ago probably for economic/marketing purposes.

Can both teams wear their home jerseys during the same contest in an NCAA football game?

Yes, both teams can wear their home uniforms during a game. As long as they are contrasting colors. For example- the University of Oklahoma Sooners' home jerseys are crimson. If and when they play a team whose home jerseys are white, then both teams would be wearing their home jerseys. Oklahoma wearing their home red and the other team wearing their home white. Oklahoma couldn't wear their away jersey's because then both teams would be wearing white.

Why do some baseball teams have names on their jerseys while other teams do not?

It tends to be a matter of home team etiquette overcoming blatant commercial advertising of a player's name. Teams like the Red Sox and Dodgers and Yankees (the Red Sox are the only one I can name for sure) don't put the names of the players on the home jerseys, probably because the hometown faithful are expected to know who they are. On the road jerseys, however, their names are listed, as is the case with any teams that have blank home jerseys that I know of. **** Correction. The Yankees do not have their names on their home jerseys OR their away jerseys.

The silver jerseys are the Patriots Alternate Jerseys. Why do they wear them?

The Pats wear them only on occasion, but the dates they do wear them are not immediately announced at the beginning of the season.
