Texas A&M football breaks away from normal uniform combo for first time since 2018
Something that fell by the wayside—perhaps rightly so—after Texas A&M football parted ways with head coach Jimbo Fisher is that the Aggies had not worn an alternate uniform since 2018, after having done so each year in the SEC up until that point. Texas A&M football did make a general uniform change starting in the 2020 season, moving away from the matte helmets and double shoulder stripes that had been their look since 2012 back towards a more traditional A&M look.
Even since then, however, the Aggies never even wore so much as a white helmet or maroon pants in a single game. It was maroon/maroon/white at home and maroon/white/white on the road, without variation. Perhaps in a sign of things yet to come with Fisher now gone, Texas A&M Football has elected to change things up for their game today against ACU.
The Aggies will be wearing all maroon for the first time since 2014 today. You can see from the above tweet that this was a welcome surprise for the players. Notably among them was Evan Stewart, whose status was something of a question headed into this game. It looks like, according to Texags on Twitter, he will be ready to go. I’m excited for this—it’s been way too long since the Aggies rocked the all maroon, and we’ve never seen it with these new styles. This is a fun way to supplement the excitement of Robinson’s first game as interim and also of senior day at Kyle Field.
