Texas and Oklahoma State kick off at 11 a.m. in Stillwater, and the Cowboys will debut a new look for the Big 12 opener at T. Boone Pickens Stadium.

Oklahoma State’s athletic department tweeted out a photo of the all-black uniforms, and Instagram account Boone Pickens State snapped a shot of the helmets, which are the star of the getup.

Here’s a look at the new helmet and uniforms.
