Holy moly, Texas. Those are quite the practice uniforms that the Longhorn Network tweeted earlier.

One step closer. First practice is live on LHN. What do you think about the new practice uniforms? @mbtexasfootball twitter.com/LonghornNetwor…

The combination of the white helmet with the more-burnt-than-usual burnt orange leaves something to be desired. Honestly, they are kind of difficult to look at. Plus, they simply don't look like they fit that well.

If only everyone had access to the Longhorn Network so that these ugly practice uniforms could be viewed in real time by all. However, Longhorn players should not feel too bad about these uniforms. After all, they could be stuck wearing this to practice:

Auburn definitely takes the cake when it comes to terrible practice uniforms. It does not come as much of a shock, though, considering the regular season alternate uniforms Under Armour has put together for teams. Spandex shorts are mildly tame in the big picture, after all.

Regardless, the Longhorns win the battle of least terrible ugly practice uniforms. Both should be grateful that neither team has to wear these during the season. Wisconsin, on the other hand, is not so lucky:
