There have been a couple of strains of alternate uniform themes that have been used by multiple teams. One is college teams dressing like the pro team whose stadium they're playing in. The other is state pride uniforms.
Maryland started it with these bad boys (emphasis on bad).
Texas Tech and Oregon have also worn similar duds.
On Saturday, Kansas will join that club by wearing Jayhawkers uniforms, honoring the state's heritage as a free state and, thus, the origin of the state university's nickname.
The Jayhawkers kits will see the field on Saturday against Baylor.
