On Saturday, the Wildcats will wear a new Under Armour alternate uniform that honors the memorable 1995 team that brought the Purple to Pasadena. Just as it did in 1995, the uniform features a black jersey, purple pants and purple helmet. The uniform also includes a Rose Bowl Game patch on the front of the jersey collar, which is much tamer than this patch.

See the full design in the tweet above.

Northwestern hosts undefeated and No. 17 Iowa in a huge Big Ten West battle at noon ET.

The Wildcats aren’t the only Big Ten set to wear an alternate in Week 7. Defending national champ and No. 1 Ohio State will go all-black for the first time vs. Penn State under the lights.
