New Maroon Out Shirts Call Back To 1998

It’s not just one game anymore!

The student-led Maroon Out organization today unveiled their 2019 T-shirt design and announced that this year’s intention is to Maroon Out every Aggie home football game, all season long.

With its image of a vintage Kyle Field and slogan “Yell Like It’s 1998,” the shirt calls back to the origins of the tradition; the first Maroon Out effort sprang from students’ desire in 1998 to outmatch red-wearing Nebraska fans in the stands. (Back then, wearing maroon to every game wasn’t Aggie fans’ standard practice.)

The shirts will be sold locally and online. Visit to buy online.

Previously, one game each year had been designated by students as the Maroon Out game – usually one of the toughest on the schedule.

Switching to a season-long effort will build camaraderie and help raise even more funds for scholarships and Class Council programs, said Maroon Out’s head director, Colleen Russell ’20.
