Oklahoma sporting new all-red uniforms for Iowa State game


“Color rush” uniforms are normally reserved for Thursday night NFL games but it appears the trend is spreading to Saturday’s too.

Oklahoma is the latest to jump on board the solid color uniform look, announcing on Thursday that they would be donning a new all-red (or is it crimson?) uniform for their Big 12 home opener against Iowa State.

Pretty slick look unless you happen to be a big fan of the burnt orange around Big 12 country. Interestingly, the program is using the hashtag #RedOnRed to promote the uniforms despite the school’s shade of the color officially being ‘Oklahoma Crimson.’

Additionally, the Sooners are hoping for fans to stripe Memorial Stadium on Saturday with crimson and cream depending on what section people are sitting in. It should all make for a neat atmosphere despite Iowa State only going with the white tops for their uniform choice — instead of the all-white ‘Color Rush’ look.

Not everything filters down from the NFL to college after all…
