MOORE — The University of Oklahoma unveiled a new look for the upcoming football season Tuesday with four alternate uniforms. After decades of wearing the season color schemes and styles, the Sooners have upgraded.

“The players are excited about them,” coach Bob Stoops said.  “It’s always positive to relate back to Bud Wilkinson’s era with the longest winning streak in college football history and three national championships. These uniforms give us a chance to do that.”

OU hasn't done away with its standard Maroon and white combinations. The new  uniforms will be brought out on special occasions.

“I think recruits are always excited about uniforms, helmets and any of the looks that you might put on the field,” Stoops said. “(The additional uniforms) won’t be something we do constantly, but it will be a nice change-up and will be positive in recruiting, with our players and with our fans.”
