New Mexico State to wear pink uniforms for Oct. 19 game against Rice

Tuesday October 8th, 2013

New Mexico State will wear pink jerseys in its Oct. 19 matchup against Rice to support breast cancer research, the school announced on Tuesday.

The new jerseys are part of the school's "Aggies Are Tough Enough to Wear Pink" campaign, which has helped raise money for breast cancer research since 2007. New Mexico State fans are also invited to trade regular crimson for pink-colored Aggies gear on gameday.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which other teams and leagues, including the NFL, have recognized on the playing field.
