Fox Sports recently set about naming the 25 best college football uniforms.

Though many of the rankings — or at least the justifications for each — seem to fall to Fox Sports’ personal proclivities for certain colors, we won’t argue with Texas’ top spot on the list.

“The burnt orange jersey is as classic as it gets,” reads their explanation of Texas’ No. 5 ranking on the best uniforms list.

Fox Sports also praised the decades-old decal that adorns the UT helmet.

Texas’ burnt orange beat out Texas A&M’s maroon, which earned itself a No. 12 spot on the list. TCU Horned Frogs slid into the top 25 at No. 24 with its purple.

Oklahoma University was left off the list.

What do you think? Should Texas be higher? Lower? What Texas jersey is your favorite?
