This past Saturday it happened. The Texas A&M Aggie players had been wondering all season when they would be wearing their new black jerseys. Adidas designed A&M new black jerseys with maroon trim as opposed to the opposite scheme that adorns the Aggies jerseys in most other games. The switch to the black jerseys came when the A&M coaches heard that their opponent, Mississippi State, was going to be wearing their white jerseys, and more importantly, having their fans all wear white. To combat this, the coaches decided to unveil the team’s new black jerseys. Well it worked. #16 A&M defeated the #15 ranked Bulldogs who had gotten off to a 7-0 start until the last two weeks when they dropped both. Both losses have been within the SEC, which doesn’t bode well for the Bulldogs as the season progresses. The game ended with a score of Texas A&M 38 Mississippi State 13.
