Northern Illinois has unveiled one very unique set of uniforms for the 2014 season. The Huskies will be wearing “Corn Fest” threads to kickoff the season against Presbyterian.
This is the design. Seriously.
Corn-y. Get it? Moving on …
According to Northern Illinois, the jerseys, which reflect the area’s agricultural heritage, will benefit a good cause.
In addition to recognizing the region’s agricultural roots, the special Corn Fest jerseys worn by the Huskies during the season opener will be auctioned online to benefit three worthy local causes. Proceeds from the auction will be split among the Voluntary Action Center of DeKalb, Boy Scout Troop 33, and the Canaday Family, a local family whose eighth-grade son, Christopher, was born with pulmonary atresia and has had 34 surgeries during his young life. Meanwhile, Christopher’s father, Mark, an NIU employee, is battling esophageal cancer.
