New Mexico State going pink for breast cancer awareness

New Mexico State unveiled pink jerseys on Tuesday for its game against Rice on Oct. 19.

You've probably seen college and NFL players with pink towels, pink shoes and pink gloves for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.


Schools have had fans "pink out" stadiums, and even NFL refs have been throwing pink flags.


But New Mexico State is taking it a step further.


The Aggies unveiled pink jerseys on Tuesday for their game against Rice on Oct. 19.




The "Pink Game" is part of the school's "NMSU Aggies are Tough Enough to Wear Pink" campaign.


New Mexico State has been raising money for breast cancer research since 2007, but this is the first time the football team will sport pink jerseys.
