You can find the "lone star" on just about anything in Texas. From barns to beer cans to belt buckles to the helmets of an NFL team, Texans are awfully proud of that thing.
So it was probably only a matter of time until it turned up on a college football uniform, too.
Texas Tech will unveil commemorative "Lone Star Pride" uniforms for their game against Texas this week. They're made by Under Armor, which earlier this year found a way to wrap the complex state flag of Maryland onto the Terrapins' helmets, so getting a lone star on each shoulder was a relatively easy trick to pull. There will also be lone stars on the Red Raiders' socks.
The timing is appropriate for a "Lone Star Pride" uniform, and not just because the Red Raiders are facing Texas, the state's flagship institution. The winner of Saturday's game will be well-positioned for a berth in the Cotton Bowl in Dallas or Alamo Bowl in San Antonio.
And both schools remain in the Top 25 despite tough weeks. No. 18 Texas Tech got blown out by BCS No. 2 Kansas State, and No. 23 Texas needed a last-minute drive to beat 1-7 Kansas.

debut their "Lone Star Pride" Under Armour uniforms against Texas on
Saturday. The Red Raiders' one-time uniforms are red...
Maybe the biggest surprise of the college football season to this point has been the Texas Tech Red Raiders. I don’t think anyone expected them to ranked in the Top 15 at this point in the season, and I know nobody expected them to beat the living daylights out of West Virginia a couple of weeks ago. But, honestly, I don’t really care about any of that.
I just want to focus on...

Texas Tech coach Chris Walker is working quickly to teach his style to players after taking over a struggling program under difficult circumstances.
The university named Walker the interim coach Oct. 4, two weeks after Billy Gillispie resigned for health reasons.
It probably won't be difficult to follow Gillispie's lone season at Texas Tech. The Red Raiders won just one...
