Baylor wears all-black uniforms to protest Art Briles firing…or did they?

The Baylor Bears will be playing their rival, TCU, and that is why they are wearing their black uniforms this week.

Earlier, news broke that the Bears were wearing blackout style uniforms and encouraging the fans to do so as well as a sign of solidarity for former coach Art Briles. Bears wide receiver Chris Platt tweeted earlier that the all blacks were more than just a meaningless change.

The message read:

“The blackout means more than just uniforms to us. #truthdontlie”

The hashtag was by members of the Baylor staff to protest the firing of coach Art Briles in the wake of a sex-scandal that has decimated the program. Platt returned to clarify that his statement was being misunderstood and was a reference to the rivalry game against TCU.

The Bear and the TCU Horned Frogs will kickoff at 3:30 p.m. ET and Baylor will look to improve to 7-1 on the season.
