Arkansas will not have a white version of the jersey top, which was worn in road games from 2005-07.
It is unclear whether the uniform unveiled Tuesday will be worn as Arkansas' primary home uniform, or just as a complement to others. The Razorbacks will retain all of their uniforms worn last season.
Arkansas' uniforms have been made by Nike since 2010. The Razorbacks' uniforms were made by Adidas from 2003-09, during the time the team wore the original uniforms being replicated by Nike.
Arkansas last wore a throwback uniform during a 14-13 loss to Alabama in 2014. The Razorbacks' uniforms that game were replicas of uniforms worn 50 years earlier when Arkansas was named national champion by the Football Writers Association of America.
In 2017, the Razorbacks wore uniforms and helmets against Texas A&M that were designed to mimic the Dallas Cowboys and honor Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, a former Arkansas player who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame earlier that year.
Otherwise, the Razorbacks have largely stuck with similar uniform combinations. Last season the team wore the same red or white jersey tops and pants in all 12 games, and rotated three helmets that were red and white.
With the throwback uniform unveiled Tuesday, Arkansas now has four jersey tops, four jersey bottoms and four helmets available to wear.
