Uni tracker: What will Oklahoma State wear against Texas?

by Gina Mizell Published: September 24, 2012

Each week, we’ll look back at what uniform combination Oklahoma State wore and make a prediction for the next game. Nothing scientific about it. All in good fun.

Against Louisiana-Lafayette, we saw the 15th different combo since the Cowboys went to 48 looks–black helmet, orange jersey and orange pants. Interesting thing here? After waiting until Game 8 to break out orange jerseys last season, the Cowboys have worn them in each of their first two home games.

Which is why I do not think we’ll see them Saturday, especially against another school that wears orange, Texas.

But before we get to that, let’s recap what the Cowboys have worn so far:

2011 season
Louisiana-Lafayette: White helmet, gray jersey, white pants (1-0)
Arizona: White helmet, black jersey, black pants (1-0)
Tulsa: White helmet (alternate black letters), white jersey, black pants (1-0)
Texas A&M: Gray helmet, white jersey, gray pants (1-0)
Kansas: Black helmet, black jersey, orange pants (1-0)
Texas: Black helmet, white jersey, black pants (1-0)
Missouri: White helmet, white jersey, white pants (1-0)
Baylor: Gray helmet, orange jersey, gray pants (1-0)
Kansas State: Gray helmet, black jersey, gray pants (1-0)
Texas Tech: White helmet, white jersey, gray pants (1-0)
Iowa State: Black helmet, white jersey, orange pants (0-1)
Oklahoma: Black helmet, orange jersey, black pants (1-0)
Fiesta Bowl: Black helmet, black jersey, black pants (1-0)

2012 season
Savannah State: White helmet, orange jersey, white pants (1-0)
Arizona: White helmet, white jersey, gray pants (repeat, now 1-1 in combo)
Louisiana-Lafayette: Black helmet, orange jersey, orange pants (1-0)
Texas: ?

So, what will OSU wear against Texas? We know the ‘Horns will come in their “storm trooper” all-white uniforms. Why not counter that and go all-black for a primetime game on national television? That’s my top prediction.

Here are my three (completely uneducated) guesses:
Black helmet, black jersey, black pants
White helmet, black jersey, white pants (the Arizona Cardinals wore this look against the Eagles Sunday, and I loved it)
Black helmet, gray jersey, black pants
