On Monday morning, we learned that the Northwestern Wildcats will wear a wild new set of American flag-themed uniforms against the Michigan Wolverines on Nov. 19.
A few hours later, the Wildcats and Under Armour unveiled a video peek at the spectacular new freedom threads. There is no purple at all on the uniforms, having been replaced by the far more patriotic colors of red, white and blue. The Stars and Strips are featured prominently on the helmet, shoulders, backs of the legs, gloves and footwear.
The uniforms are being worn to raise awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project.
