We know that the blue blood schools around the college football landscape tend to have a respect for the level of tradition in which they use in their uniforms week in and week out. And that is true for the Texas football program, which has one of the more renowned sets of uniforms and one of the most recognizable logos in all of sports.
The overall level of respect and marketability was recognized for the Longhorns in one of the offseason uniform rankings, this time done by NBC Sports recently. NBC Sports ranked the top 25 best college football uniforms on what seemed to be just a general criterion of marketability and how much they please the eye.
This list held the Longhorns in pretty high regard, ranking them second among the top 25 uniforms across all of college football. The lone team that the Longhorns ranked behind here was the Oregon Ducks, who held the top spot.
The Texas football uniforms holding respect down on the national scene
Here’s more on what this NBC Sports piece had to say on the matter of falling in line second on the list of the best uniforms in college football.

There wasn’t much to say about the Longhorns uniforms. Keeping it simple and traditional is the name of the game for the uniforms on the Forty Acres, and it has worked for a long time.
Being able to appreciate the tradition and simplicity to the Longhorns uniforms, and helmets in particular, are part of what makes them so special. Texas has tried some alternates in the past, to varying degrees of success, but it’s hard to beat the traditional orange and white uniforms and helmets.
Texas is set to take the field in their traditional burnt orange and white uniforms under a new head coach in Steve Sarkisian. And Sark is about to get summer workouts underway for the Longhorns with a new group of additions to the program.
