Texas and Oklahoma will sport these gold-trimmed jerseys at Saturday’s Red River Rivalry.

This may not be the most compelling Red River Rivalry in the series’ 113-year history, but hey, it’s still a classic Texas-Oklahoma matchup and possibly our last chance to see Mack Brown in burnt orange. As for everyone else on the field, a splash of gold will be thrown in the mix, matching the game’s trophy. Nike is producing special uniforms for the game with gold accents on both teams’ traditional color patterns, adding a shimmery quality to the schools’ logos, a Red River Rivalry patch, gloves and, of course, the Nike swoosh.

Here is another look at the Longhorns’ jerseys including their gold gloves:

And here’s what the Sooners’ gloves will look like:

None of this changes the fact that Oklahoma is favored by two touchdowns in Saturday’s game, but who knows? Maybe a Sooners player will be blinded by the sun glinting off the Longhorns jerseys at an inopportune time and allow Texas back into the game. That’d have to be less controversial than Texas’ win last week, right?

Pathetic that this matters.

I'm a big Sooner fan, but this does nothing for me.  It might mean something if it were for some cause, rather than a new line of football wear for Nike to sell.

Let me go out on a limb and predict that after this game Texas won't want anything to do with the memory of this uniform.

@Blinker Yes.  A wearer of burgundy uniforms that Miami likes to beat up on.

Slow news day...  Gotta fill space until Coach Brown gets fired next Saturday night after losing to Oklahoma.  (It's the only rivalry they have left after we (Aggies) jumped to the SEC.
