Arkansas State's uniforms, as seen above, were dark colors, as were Auburn's. But because Auburn was the home team and Arkansas State couldn't understand the concept of contrast, officials hit them with a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for their grey and red numbers. They gave up another 15 yards after halftime for not changing.

Auburn ended up winning 38-9, so while the uniform penalties certainly didn't help Arkansas State, they probably weren't the biggest problem.
