Northwestern will don its traditional home purple jersey Saturday against Nebraska, paired with a black helmet with the block “N” and black pants. The program announced the uniforms in a tweet Thursday afternoon.

NU last wore this uniform combo against Pitt in the 2016 Pinstripe Bowl.
Correction: An earlier version of this article inaccurately stated NU last wore this uniform combination against Duke in 2016. The Wildcats wore the combination in the Pinstripe Bowl later that same season, and the article has been corrected to reflect that.
