New Mexico to wear turquoise-accented uniforms vs. Texas A&M

Mineral-themed uniforms are my favorite

New Mexico’s mascot may be the Lobos, but they’ll also be rocking a bit of state pride in their uniforms when they take on Texas A&M. The Lobos revealed this morning that in addition to their traditional red and black color scheme, their uniforms today will feature turquoise accents.

New Mexico’s turquoise gems are famous for their wide array of colors and matrices. New Mexico’s turquoise mines are some of the oldest mined in the southwest and the Cerrillos turquoise mine, near Santa Fe, the most extensively mined operation in America with the largest known turquoise deposit on North America by Native Indians.

Today’s game between the Lobos and Aggies kicks on at 11 a.m. at Kyle Field in College Station, and can be viewed on SEC Network.
