Texas A&M to face Cowboys, err, Arkansas at AT&T Stadium

Sep 21, 2017, 9:07 AM | Updated: 9:17 am

College football teams are always doing their best to keep up with the Joneses when it comes to their uniforms.

This week, one program is actually paying tribute to the Joneses — or at least one Jones.

The Arkansas Razorbacks will take on the Texas A&M Aggies in the Southwest Classic at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, otherwise known as “Jerry’s World.” The magnificent venue is the pride and joy of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, an Arkansas alum and former Razorbacks player.

So, Arkansas will take the field in uniforms that are based on the Cowboys’ duds — a tip of the cap to Jones, who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August.

They look pretty fantastic. Here’s more info about how the idea came to be.
