Oklahoma revealed its new alternate uniforms on Twitter, and they're definitely "bringing the wood."

For the first time, it will say "Oklahoma" on the front, rather than "Sooners."

Via OU's press release:

 
Nike’s white helmet design pays tribute to Wilkinson’s squads that captured national championships in 1950, 1955 and 1956. Those Oklahoma teams wore white headgear with a signature crimson stripe from crown to base. The latest version of this helmet concept includes a similar crimson stripe (embedded with a wood-grained pattern), as well as the addition of an officially-sized OU logo on each side.
. . .
In typical Nike fashion, even the smallest details on these latest uniforms are fully loaded with Sooner symbolism. Anthracite was chosen for facemasks, gloves and socks to match the traditional feel of black Nike Vapor Talon Elite cleats. These accoutrements evoke images of a nickname bestowed upon the Oklahoma squad in its 1890s infancy – “The Rough Riders.”
