Texas Longhorns will wear retro helmets during opener to honor ’63 title team

The University of Texas will proudly wear these throwback helmets during their season opener to honor the 50th anniversary of the 1963 Longhorns squad that brought home the university’s first collegiate title. The helmet features the iconic Longhorns logo, but with numeric decals placed above it on either side of the headpiece.


Texas coach Mack Brown is open to the team wearing the helmets for the entire season, but will let the players vote on it before making a decision.
