This Saturday, the Arkansas Razorbacks are honoring future Hall of Famer Jerry Jones with uniforms that draw inspiration from the Dallas Cowboys.
The team unveiled the uniforms Sunday afternoon on Twitter. The uniforms will ditch the white pants and red helmets for Cowboy's iconic grey that makes up most of its uniform. The Cowboys blue will be replaced for the tried and true Cardinal red that has been a staple in Razorbacks football.
Jones, who is the owner of the Cowboys, was a part of the 1964 national championship team.

"I don't know that I've had anything happen to me that has been as meaningful as this gesture from the University of Arkansas," Jones told the university in an interview.
The alternate uniforms will not only honor Jones, but the Hogs will continue to honor the life of the late Frank Broyles with a sticker on the back of the helmet.
The announcement comes with a limited time to buy replica versions of the special jersey. They will be available for purchase at Hog Heaven at Bud Walton Area, shop.arkansasrazorbacks.com, or the U of A Bookstore and Academy.
The Arkansas Razorbacks will take on the Texas A&M Aggies this Saturday at AT&T Stadium. The game is scheduled to start at 11:00 a.m. on ESPN.
