New Mexico State has unveiled pink uniforms that it will wear against Rice on October 19.

Robin Zielinski of Las Cruces Sun-News tweeted out another shot of the uniforms:

Of course this is to promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We have seen football teams use pink towels, cleats, gloves and chin straps before. Some schools have used pink on their helmets before, but a pink uniform is unique.

The Aggies are doing a good thing by going pink, and their "Tough Enough to Wear Pink" movement is one of the coolest things we have seen in support of the cause.
