Oklahoma Has Some Crazy New Wood-Themed Helmets

College football is rapidly approaching and that can only mean one thing: uniform news is going to be coming at as fast and furious.


Today we have Oklahoma, a traditional powerhouse with traditional duds, unveiling a new alternate look full of wood grain. Dubbed the “Rough Rider” this look serves as a tribute to the rugged settlers of the area.

 These additional jersey-pants-helmet combinations were inspired by the rich heritage of the state of Oklahoma and the Sooners’ storied football history. These new uniforms will occasionally supplement the traditional OU home and road uniforms the team has sported for decades and will continue to utilize on a regular basis.

It’s a pretty out-there choice for a school which has shied away from big, splashy threads in the past.
