The Eyes of Texas

A contact lens that has been in development for seven years and received FDA approval in April will face its biggest test yet when Texas plays Missouri. Nike Maxsight, designed to cut down on bright sunlight and glare, will be worn by 30 Longhorn players. The lenses, which come in gray-green (favored by skill position players) and amber (favored by linemen), have quickly become popular with the Longhorns. "When you glance up in the sky when the ball is coming, it's a lot clearer," tight end David Thomas said. Other teams using the lenses including Miami, USC and Michigan (some registration required).
