NORMAN — Oklahoma will wear alternate uniforms for the fourth time in the Bob Stoops area this season. The others have been one-off sets while this year the Sooners will have a true alternate uniform option to use occasionally.

Here’s a look at the three other times the Sooners wore different uniforms than their traditional ones:

AUGUST 29, 2003 VS. NORTH TEXAS

The look: OU wore throwback modeled after the look worn by Bud Wilkinson’s dominant teams of the 1950s. The Sooners wore white helmets with a crimson stripe, crimson jerseys with white sleeve stripes and smaller numbers.

The game: Oklahoma rolled past the Mean Green 37-3 at home in the season opener. Eventual Heisman Trophy winner Jason White threw for three touchdowns.

NOVEMBER 21, 2009 AT TEXAS TECH

The look: The Sooners wore all-white Nike Pro Combat uniforms with white helmets with a crimson stripe, a nod to the Wilkinson era.

The game: The Red Raiders routed OU 41-13, holding the Sooners to 48 rushing yards and intercepting Landy Jones twice.

OCTOBER 12, 2013 VS. TEXAS

The look: OU, wearing its away whites, wore a gold-tinged version of their traditional road uniforms. The numbers were outlined in gold and a Red River Rivalry patch and the Nike logo, as well as the OU logo on the collar, were all gold.

The game: The Sooners were heavy favorite coming in but Texas jumped ahead early and the Longhorns won handily, 36-20. Texas took advantage of two interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown.
