Texas Tech and Oklahoma State are opening their Big 12 schedules in a Thursday night affair in Stillwater, and both programs marked the occasion with never-before-seen uniforms.

Texas Tech1

Texas Tech2

Texas Tech 3

Oklahoma State countered with its traditional all black uniforms topped by an orange chrome helmet with an exploded Pistol Pete decal.
