*Yep, I think it’s clear*
After a roller coaster week of new uniforms and Dorial Green-Beckham, Sooner fans finally have a chance to breathe. Though, the new uniforms are still an intriguing thing to talk about.
Every year, you know Oklahoma is going to wear their normal home and road attire, no matter what. However, this year Oklahoma gets to play Oregon and maybe have a different look every week.
Will they do this? Probably not. However, I thought I’d take the liberty to lay out the football team’s clothes for the entire season, because it’s July and the season is still way too far off.
THE UNOFFICIAL 2014 UNIFORM COMBOS:
- Aug. 30 vs. Louisiana Tech — White alternate helmet, primary home jersey, primary white pants. A lot of fans are excited for the new look, and while the Sooners will not want to debut the entire new alternate uniforms in front of a pay-per-view audience, they could give the home crowd a nice treat with at least one new item. Similar to the white-red-white combo OU showed in their 2003 season opener against the North Texas Mean Green, the players need something to be excited about in a game they will be heavily favored to win. The new white alternate helmets with the regular home duds could be a nice look.
- Sept. 6 at Tulsa — Regular road uniforms. Once again, no point in debuting the new alternates anywhere outside of Norman. The regular road look is a great one, anyway. The traditional red helmets and away jersey/pants combo is one of the best in college football. No need to change that in OU’s first road game of the season.
- Sept. 13 vs. Tennessee — White alternate helmet, red alternate jersey, cream alternate pants. Let’s make the assumption College Gameday shows up for this game, this is the best time to unveil the #BringTheWood uniforms. In front of a national audience, this will get the players excited to play an SEC team, and also, it will give recruits a chance to see the new direction Oklahoma football is headed.
- Sept. 20 at West Virginia — Alternate red helmet, cream alternate jersey, cream pants. As I’ve said before, the font on the new alternates are reminiscent of West Virginia’s new uniforms. I think OU can confuse the Mountaineers by mirroring them with the uniforms. Hopefully they don’t mirror WVU’s performance, though.
- Oct. 4 at Texas Christian — White alternate helmet, primary road jersey, primary white pants. Time to unleash the STORM TROOPER look! The Sooners already look slick with their all white road uniforms, but replace the primary red helmet with the alternate white’s, you have a great all-white look to show off on the road.
- Oct. 11 vs. Texas (in Dallas) — Primary red helmet, gold trim red jerseys, primary white pants. We actually do know for a fact that Oklahoma and Texas will continue with the gold-themed uniforms from last year. Oklahoma, however, will get the gold trim with their regular home jerseys, rather than their road jerseys.
- Oct. 18 vs. Kansas State — Red alternate helmet, primary home jersey, primary white pants. For homecoming, why not spice it up a little by adding the red alternate helmet? I’m excited to see how this would look with the regular home duds.
- Nov. 1 at Iowa State — Red alternate helmet, cream alternate jersey, red alternate pants. As worn at the initial uniform unveiling, this would be a good road game to go full-on alternate. I mean, OU should beat Iowa State, right?
- Nov. 8 vs. Baylor — Red alternate helmet, red alternate jersey, red alternate pants. If Baylor wants to black us out last year, WELL, LET’S RED THEM OUT INSIDE THE HOME OF SEVEN NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS…CHARGE!!!!!
- Nov. 15 at Texas Tech — Yeah, we’re just going to go with the regular road duds here. No further comment.
- Nov. 22 vs. Kansas — White alternate helmet, red alternate jersey, cream alternate pants. In their second to last home game, might as well let the seniors get at least one more game in the new uniforms.
- Dec. 6 vs. Oklahoma State — Regular home uniforms. In their last home game, the seniors should be able to wear the uniforms they flourished in for four years. The new uniforms are nice, but on Senior Day, let’s pay tribute to the class that brought OU back in to national prominence.
One of the biggest rivalries in college football, Michigan vs Ohio State is this year’s most expensive game on the 2014 NCAA football schedule.
