PHOTOS: Baylor to wear throwback uniforms vs. Texas
Baylor will wear these throwback uniforms against Texas in Saturday's regular season finale.
Baylor no longer controls its own Big 12 destiny or has any shot at a BCS title, but Saturday's Bears game shapes up as arguably the biggest one of the year anyway. Texas is coming to Waco, the Bears can still grab a share of the conference title with a win (and possibly a Fiesta Bowl berth if Oklahoma helps out), and most importantly the game will be the final one for 64-seasons-old Floyd Casey Stadium before the Bears move into their new palace by the Brazos in 2014.
And since the Bears are no strangers to breaking out a new set of uniforms for a big game, it won't be a surprise they'll be wearing something unique Saturday. Though in this case, it'll be an old set of uniforms. Via the Baylor equipment feed and UniWatch, here's their throwbacks for the game:
And here's a close-up shot of the special patch on the front of the jersey:
