Last year was the first season Arkansas wore their new "husks" uniforms. With Arkansas starting the season off by traveling to Jordan-Hare, this week's game will mark the first time we see Auburn face off against their new red tops. Last year, Arkansas went white from head to toe. This season, they've only worn their red helmets and white pants. If the Razorbacks wanted to go full-on all-red, this would probably be the week for them to do so.

Previous Game Review
Like mentioned above, last week's game was the first time this season that Auburn wore the white jerseys. Many people have asked if this game was the latest in the season that Auburn first wore the white jerseys. That record is still held by the 2013 team, in which it was the Texas A&M game, game seven on the schedule, that Auburn did not wear blue.

Many people voiced their displeasure about the metallic orange helmet stripe not matching the orange in the rest of the uniform. This topic was mentioned before after the Louisville game, but I haven't heard much since then. I agree that the oranges did not match, but I'm not as picky in this manner as many other fans are. It comes with the territory in terms of the finish of the stripe, and I'm ok with that. I like how the helmet pops more with the stripe. Yea, it may be a bit extreme for Auburn, and the same effect with a brighter shade of orange might match better.
