A sentence I don’t want to hear anymore this week: “White for a home game?”

Oklahoma State unveiled it’s 1987 Sun Bowl Throwbacks to be worn this weekend at home against West Virginia, and similar to the 1988 throwbacks the Pokes wore in 2018, these are a thing of beauty.

They aren’t an exact one-to-one copy of the Sun Bowl unis. The key difference is the Sun Bowl logo on the shoulders is replaced with player numbers. A fine tradeoff for some unis that sleek.

They are essentially the 1988 throwbacks from 2018 but in white. It looked great in 2018; it looks great in 2020.

The uniforms commemorate Thurman Thomas and the Cowboys’ 1987 Sun Bowl victory against West Virginia. OSU won the game, Thomas’ last as a Cowboy, 35-33. Thomas is being inducted as the first honoree the OSU’s new Ring of Honor on Saturday.

“I want it to end with a W,” Thomas said of Saturday’s game. “That’s all I care about. That’s all I care about. To have them wear that jersey, that jersey is actually in my basement. I went down the other day to look at it, and I was like, ‘Wow, they’re going to be wearing the exact same jersey that I played my last football game in against West Virginia. That jersey right there.’ … It’s gonna be special to see it. My family and I are really looking forward to it.”
