Blue Jerseys Stay Flexible for Road and Home Games

Like the road grays, the blues saw minimal updates this offseason which was a good decision. Prior to the introduction of the red jerseys a few years ago, the blue jerseys were the only color jersey Texas wore featuring both alongside the grays on the road and the whites at home. Even with the reds introduced the blue still were used on the road and at home and the plan for them remains the same after the update.

The ‘TEXAS’ word mark still features on the front as usual but the numbers on the back go from white, outlined in blue, outlined in red to white, outlined in blue, with a red shadow. It will also get the piping upgrade with a bolder red, white and blue down the pants but on the sleeves the color trio goes powder blue, white, red to add a little contrast. I’m not sure how I like the different color accents on the sleeves and the pants but I don’t know that there was another option and it’s minor enough that I didn’t even notice it at first glance.
