Uni tracker: And finally…the gray jerseys

by Gina Mizell Published: November 13, 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.

I was oh-so-close on my Oklahoma State uniform prediction for the West Virginia game.

I thought the Cowboys would wear black helmets, gray jerseys and black pants. The went black-gray-gray.

I will say that the new gray jerseys, which have black numbers instead of orange and appear to be darker, are a big upgrade from last year’s version. It’s interesting to see/hear fans’ opinions on the gray in general. Some love it, some hate it. It’s definitely the most polarizing part of OSU’s uniform options.

Anyway, onto Texas Tech, the Cowboys’ final home game. I think OSU will go more traditional, with a lot of orange and a lot of black.

But before I get to my prediction, let’s look back at what OSU has worn the last two seasons.

2011 season
Louisiana-Lafayette: White helmet, gray jersey, white pants (1-0)
Arizona: White helmet, black jersey, black pants (1-0)
Tulsa: White helmet (black OSU decal), white jersey, black 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 OSU logo), orange jersey, white pants (1-0)
Arizona: White helmet (orange OSU logo), white jersey, gray pants (repeat, now 1-1 in combo)
Louisiana-Lafayette: Black helmet (orange OSU logo), orange jersey, orange pants (1-0)
Texas: Black helmet (orange OSU logo), orange jersey, black pants (repeat, now 1-1 in combo)
Kansas: Gray helmet (white OSU logo), white jersey, gray pants (repeat, now 2-0 in combo)
Iowa State: Orange helmet (Pistol Pete logo), orange jersey, orange pants (1-0)
TCU: Black helmet (Phantom Pistol Pete logo), black jersey, black pants (repeat, now 2-0 in combo)
Kansas State: Orange helmet (OSU logo), white jersey, orange pants (0-1)

Texas Tech: ?

Three completely uneducated guesses for Texas Tech
Orange helmet (OSU logo), black jersey, orange pants
Orange helmet (Pistol Pete logo), orange jersey, black pants
Black helmet (orange OSU logo), black jersey, orange pants
