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 Tech wore hand-painted chrome lids with an exaggerated masked rider logo that looked like it was about to take flight:
Oklahoma State countered with its traditional all black uniforms topped by an orange chrome helmet with an exploded Pistol Pete decal.
Combined, they created a match that looked really good, or really stinkin’ terrible (depending on your perspective) with no in between.

As always, Twitter weighed in with its always-positive thoughts:
Texas Tech’s opening drive: Three total horses on its uniforms, four first downs, seven points. Nicely done. — David Ubben (@davidubben) September 25, 2014
Looks like it’s the Battle of Secondary Logos tonight in Stillwater.

Texas Tech’s uniforms look like a Tapout tee shirt. Which, however obvious the statement may seem, is not a compliment.
