Northwestern will look a lot different when it plays Michigan on Nov. 16. That’s because the Wildcats will be ditching their familiar purple, white and black for a patriotic design. The look, designed by Under Armour, features a monochromatic gray uniform, with plenty of Red, White and Blue accents.

It’s on the NU logos, shoulders, backside of the pants, cleats, gloves and socks. There’s even a red pattern that resembles blood. The helmet is patriotic, too.

Also, as we’ve seen the service academies do in the past, the player nameplates will feature one of the following words: Duty, Honor, Courage, Commitment, Integrity, Country and Service.

According to Northwestern, the uniforms will be auctioned off with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Wounded Warrior Project.
