Aggies to honor 1939 championship with epic throwback uniforms

In honor of Texas A&M’s last national championship in 1939, the Aggies will don throwback uniforms as they take the field Saturday against Louisiana-Monroe.

It won’t be an exact replica of that the Aggies wore 75 years ago as it was commonplace in football to wear simple, leather helmets instead of the protective ones seen today, but Texas A&M’s uniform provider, Adidas, stepped up to the challenge.

Not only did Adidas step up to task to honor the past, they scored big time with a modernized leather-helmet look.

From the weathered numbers on the front, to the rusted-look of the facemask, this helmet, which took staff more than six hours to create, nails the throwback look.

Topping off the uniform, the Aggies are adding a 1939 national championship commemorative patch on the jersey and stamp of it on the helmet.

Texas A&M has dropped its past three games to Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Alabama after starting the season 5-0. The Aggies are hoping the new, retro look can help create a spark as they attempt to end the skid at home against UL Monroe on Saturday at Kyle Field.
