Cool - what's the design on front? seems like it could be one of those retro revival branded tees from the early 2000s....or some obscure 80s brand.

The RN belongs to L.A. LAB, INC. in Los Angeles.

Here's the link to run the query: https://rn.ftc.gov/pls/textilern/wrnquery$.startup

Here's the URL you can use:

https://rn.ftc.gov/pls/textilern/wrnquery$.startup

This one turns out to be LA Lab in - which is Chip & Pepper - so I think my original suspicion was right - it's a faux vintage brand extension for Chip & Pepper. Looks like they probably had/have a line of retro college sports tees.

Likely a product of the new millennium.

Here's another "throwback" modern college t-shirt I recently found. Also a tri-blend, vintage look, made in US etc.. this one had a web site address on the back of the tag, though, which was a more obvious tip-off.

Yup HOMAGE has exploded on the retro sports repro front.

Actually, the name "Homage" is kind of a giveaway if you think about it.
