Texas Tech Rolling out 'Lone Star Pride' Uniforms This Weekend

By Brandon Cavanaugh

With Big Tex now waving to folks enjoying deep fried treats in the sky, the Texas Tech Red Raiders are looking to add insult to injury when they take on the Texas Longhorns this Saturday.

The Red Raiders will be trotting out “Lone Star Pride” uniforms which will trump the Alamo as “The Most ‘Texas’ Thing in Texas” for a day.

These red, white and blue beauties are the work of Under Armour, also known as the horrible people responsible for the Maryland Terrapins uniforms that were so bad, they actually became tolerable before becoming hideous again.

After dropping games to the West Virginia Mountaineers and Oklahoma Sooners, the Longhorns rebounded against the Baylor Bears, but had to hold on tight for a win against the Kansas Jayhawks.

A loss in Lubbock could send an emotionally-drained Longhorn squad into Ames, Iowa ripe for an upset by the Iowa State Cyclones. Texas finishes the season against the Kansas State Wildcats who are looking to polish their resume for national title contention.

Speaking of the Wildcats, the Red Raiders took a thumping by KSU last week in their fourth straight game against a ranked team. A victory over Texas would put them in prime position to finish their regular season off in style with hopes of a more prominent bowl trip.

Regardless of who wins or loses, at least it’ll be painfully obvious which team is which during Saturday’s game. Under Armour actually put a tolerable product on the field, can the Red Raiders do the same?
