Uniform Predictions: Baylor

NCAA Football: Texas Christian at Oklahoma State Rob Ferguson-USA TODAY Sports

So Baylor does this really cool thing where they let everyone know how the team will look when they take the field a day early.

That’s okay, Oklahoma State. We enjoy the suspense.

It’s a good look for the Bears as they open conference play at home. Gotta love those chrome helmets. So how will the Cowboys look on their first road game?

We offer our expert predictions that are based on nothing but wishful thinking.

Obviously, some of these examples will be from the old set but you’ll get the overall idea.


Black / White / Grey - Phantom Pete helmet - black face mask

I almost went Orange chrome helmet but think the black is way better to contrast Baylor’s chrome domes.

They’re the same helmets they wore last time they played in Waco (Rudolph's first game). Plus something about being a "black hat" strolling into town is always a cool look for a road game.


The grey pants are my favorite non-orange option.

"Haven't seen the black pants yet and just have a feeling they show off a new black helmet. Also think the gold/black/white will look good together."


Black / White / Grey - Phantom Pete helmet - chrome face mask.

(See above, minus face mask.)

"I'll actually go with Black /White /Grey. Yes Kyle, I'm agreeing with you. Phantom Pete w/chrome face mask black helmet."

"We're going to see it at some point, just a matter of when."

"With Baylor going gold/black/black, we could go chrome against chrome again like the Cactus Bowl and do something like O/W/B. I also think W/W/W would look great against their look. B/W/B is top level stuff, and with the black numbers on the new jerseys it'll be even better, but I wonder if our equipment guys would want to avoid using a lot of black when Baylor is going almost totally black."

Thanks for committing, Christopher. You only get half an imaginary point if either of those is correct.

"I said on the podcast that I was going to go with the standard matte black helmet, white jersey and white pants. I think I’ve wobbled on that a little bit, though. I’m starting to think this game has Black/White/Black written all over it. Black chrome helmet with a new decal that we haven’t seen yet, white jersey and black pants. "

Anyone who leaves a correct prediction in the comment sections gets double imaginary points.
