Texas Sporting Throwback Lids in Opener


This season marks 50 years since Texas captured the 1963 national title. The 2013 Longhorns squad is paying tribute to the ’63 team on Saturday against New Mexico State — and could continue to do so throughout the season.

In addition to the classic burnt orange Longhorn decal, the sides of each player’s helmet will contain their uniform number — just as it was back in the days of Tommy Nobis. Head coach Mack Brown has said that the team will later vote on whether to sport the throwback helmets for just this game or the entire season.

Either way, it’s always cool to bring back a classic. Grade: B
