Who wore it best? Retro uniforms edition

You got the memo, right? Saturday is retro uniform day in college football, as Arkansas, UTEP and N.C. State will break out some nice throwback looks.

First, Arkansas, who will honor its the 50th anniversary of its 1964 national championship team with 1964-styled uniforms for its home game with Alabama:

Next, UTEP digs into the archives to revive this version of the perfectly-named Paydirt Pete mascot:

Finally, N.C. State will bring back its Tuffy the Wolf mascot for Saturday's home game with Boston College.


If seeing those logos old logos doesn't remind you how much time has changed the game of college football, this will: each of these three retro-ified programs will wear their revived looks against teams that were not in their respective conferences when these looks were originally worn.
