The Texas A&M Aggies will have a new—yet familiar—look when they take the field against Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday.

In honor of the 75th anniversary of the Aggies' last national championship team, Adidas has unveiled 1939 throwback uniforms. Adidas has helped Texas A&M stay modern with uniforms in recent seasons, but the company went all out to help the team pay homage to its past.

Adidas included a commemorative patch on the jersey, inspired by the ones the team wore during the 1939 season. Of course, science has come a long way since 1939, and Adidas made sure these uniforms were made with Techfit Shockweb technology.

The jersey and pants don't look like anything out of the ordinary.

However, the helmet and cleats certainly jump out.

The helmets are easily the most unique part of this look. Each helmet is "dark maroon with a hydro film leather-like texture featuring wing and cross graphics."

Even the cleats, "designed in a dark brown throwback style with a premium tumbled leather upper and metal eyelets," got the throwback treatment.

How do these throwback uniforms grade out?
