The Arkansas Razorbacks on Tuesday afternoon unveiled throwback uniforms that mimic those worn by the program during the Darren McFadden era (2005-07).
The cardinal uniform prominently displays “Arkansas” across the chest in an all-caps large block font, similar to that of Southwest Conference rivals Oklahoma and Texas, with the classic running Razorback logo on the sleeves. The white pants, meanwhile, feature a double cardinal stripe down the side.
The program spared no detail when recreating the uniforms, right down to the thin font (rather than the custom font introduced in 2014) on the helmet bumper. The only discernible difference is that Arkansas was outfitted by adidas at the time these uniforms were worn, but has been a Nike school since 2010.
“We’ll see some changes back to more traditional looks,” athletic director Hunter Yuracheck said on Twitter Monday night. “I think it’ll make Arkansas fans very happy.”
The Razorbacks won 22 games and made an appearance in the SEC Championship game while McFadden, a two-time Heisman Trophy finalist, played in Fayetteville.
It’s worth nothing the throwback uniform will not replace the Razorbacks’ primary home and road uniforms, but will serve as a complementary piece. It is unclear at this time for what game(s) the new threads will be worn, however.
