It’s always awesome to see college teams busting out special throwback uniforms to pay tribute to past teams and players. According to Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury during his appearance at Big 12 Media Days today, the Red Raiders will do that when the team takes on Arkansas on September 13 in Lubbock.

Thomas played linebacker for the Red Raiders from 1992-1995, and is one of the best players in program history, having been named a first-team All American as a junior and a senior, with his selection senior year coming unanimously. There’s no word on exactly what the jerseys will look like, but based on pictures of jerseys from when Thomas was in school, the jerseys will be all-black and simple for a clean, classic look.
