Northwestern Debuts Gothic-Style Uniforms For Homecoming (Photos)

The Northwestern University Wildcats will sport a unique look for the football team’s homecoming game against the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Oct. 18.

The school released photos of the black, gothic-style Under Armour uniforms on Monday, and one word that comes to mind when we look at them is “academic.” The unis feature a black-purple-and-gold color scheme, a nod to the school’s colors of “purple and ‘old gold,'” during the late 19th century, according to the Northwestern Athletics Facebook page.
