The Notre Dame football program will be the latest college football team to wear special throwback uniforms as part of Under Armour’s 150th-anniversary celebration. The Fighting Irish will wear their Under Armour Heritage uniforms this weekend when they play host to the Boston College Golden Eagles.
The uniforms will honor Notre Dame’s 1988 national championship team.
“Mesh number detailing, traditional ‘Vegas Gold’ coloring, striking black Under Armour Spotlight cleats and throwback ‘ND’ shoulder patches are all inspired by the 1988 program. The 1988 Fighting Irish were one of the most dominant to ever play the game. Led by legendary Coach Lou Holtz, the team steamrolled 10 out of their 12 opponents by double digits and upset the #1 ranked Miami Hurricanes that season,” the statement from Under Armour reads.
“The 2019 Notre Dame squad looks to repeat the same on-field excellence as their forebears when they toe the line of scrimmage in South Bend this weekend. Supplemented by detailing that pays homage to the school’s history, including gloves inspired by the campus quad and the CFB150 patch, the throwback uniforms reflect the massive impact of the Fighting Irish on the greater college football community. They are also a statement that Notre Dame will continue to do for the next generation of student-athletes, alumni and fans the world over.”
Kickoff between the No. 15 Fighting Irish and Boston College at Notre Dame Stadium is set for Saturday, November 23 at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
