The Texas A&M football team will be paying tribute to the past when they take the field on Saturday, Oct. 6. On Monday, Sept. 17, the Aggies took to social media to show off a new throwback look that is a homage to the 1998 season when Texas A&M went 11-3 and claimed the Big 12 title. It was the last Aggies team to win a championship.
With the throwback jerseys, Texas A&M will be sporting a “mesh jersey” look while also featuring throwback SEC logos on the jersey and helmet.
From the press release:
Inspired by the team’s story of perseverance, Texas A&M’s throwback uniform pays homage to the storied final games of the season. Going into the 1998 Big 12 Championship game, A&M was coming off a bitter loss to the Longhorns and the newly No. 10 ranked Aggies were set to face the No. 1, undefeated team in the country, Kansas State. Down 27-12 in the third quarter, A&M bounced back to secure two huge touchdowns in the fourth quarter, tying the game 27-27. After two consecutive overtimes, the underdog Aggies pulled ahead to secure a 36-33 win and a bid to the ’99 Sugar Bowl.
Here is a look at the official unveiling of the new look.
The Aggies, currently ranked No. 22 in the Top 25 AP Poll, are set to face off against the Kentucky Wildcats on Nov. 6. You can check out more photos of the A&M throwback uniforms by checking out the school’s official website.
