new northwestern wildcats uniforms

In a mere nine days’ time, the Northwestern Wildcats will kick off one of the most highly-anticipated seasons in program history at Cal.

An out of conference opening game against another power conference school is never easy, but at least NU will be looking crazy fresh out West.

On Thursday, the ‘Cats released a video officially unveiling a set of nearly all-white uniforms and helmets for kickoff. The threads feature a white jersey broken by three horizontal purple stripes – one thick, two thin. It features a purple “Northwestern” printed above the numbers. There are purple tones on the helmet as well, including the “N” logo, a “W.I.N” above the facemask and even the facemask itself.

The gloves at the end of the video clip bring all the smart-guy swag together.
