Texas Tech will be decked out in all black uniforms similar to the one here worn by D.J. Johnson as he takes down Aaron Fisher during the Texas Tech Spring Game at Jones AT&T Stadium in Lubbock Saturday, March. 24, 2012.

Texas Tech will wear its all-black uniforms on Saturday against Oklahoma -- black pants, black jerseys, black helmets -- coach Tommy Tuberville announced Monday.

Tuberville said the school is also encouraging all fans to wear black for the 2:30 p.m. kickoff. The game will air locally and regionally on ABC and can be viewed on ESPN2 in other parts of the country.

"It's going to be a cool day, around 70 degrees, so (wearing black) shouldn't be a problem," Tuberville said. "We want to show the people on national television what we look like in terms of being a Red Raider when we do have a blackout game."

Tech expects a sell-out crowd, as only about 1,000 tickets were left as of about 1 p.m. Monday.

Apparently

Black is subliminally intimidating, if you believe in that kind of stuff. I remember hearing that about the Steelers back in the day when Dallas had an NFL team.
