Here is a picture from later in the Mass. You will notice that the Pope gave him a very special one with the Fighing Saints logo on it.

No I am not saying that Papa Francesco is cheering on the Fighting Saints over any of the other teams.  But the fact that he allowed this unusual addition the the pallium does imply it.
