Texas Longhorns Football Team to Wear Throwback Helmets to Start the Season

The Texas Longhorns will be rocking an old school look when they take the field against New Mexico State this Saturday. These throwback helmets will be worn to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1963 Longhorns national championship team. Texas beat Navy 28-6 the Cotton Bowl.

There has been quite a buzz surrounding the recent changes to the Longhorn's uniform ... and now this? When did The University of Texas become so "fashion forward"?

Are you a fan of the throwback look? Sound off on our Facebook page!
