We’ve got another college football uniform update today, and it’s a pretty major one. And a pretty minor one. The major: the update in question is a new Texas football jersey, meaning one of the country’s most recognizable looks is being updated. The minor: we’re talking about small tweaks, rather than a major overhaul.
Most notably, the Texas Longhorn logo has been embroidered on the base of the collar, adding a bit more school spirit just above the “TEXAS” script. Interestingly, the Flywire you see on the collar will not adorn the on-field uniforms; this one is just a prototype.
Second, the TV numbers have shifted from the sleeves to the top of the shoulder, presumably a move to prevent overcrowding, being that the sleeves also feature a double-stripe near the cuffs.
Overall, the biggest change is probably the jersey itself, which is comprised of Nike Pro Combat Hypercool material, instead of the more traditional mesh. So while the details are quite different, the overall aesthetic is pretty similar, ensuring one of the country’s classic shirts retains its timeless style.
Check out a few photos of each new piece below, and stay tuned for further updates and photos as the season approaches.
