As November approaches and the weather turns, we are officially nearing the end of #SpookySzn. To commemorate the occasion, NU football is breaking out a very lightly-used uniform combination as they traipse into Bloomington this weekend.
According to official Northwestern jersey chronicler Ella Brockway, the Wildcats have donned this unique attire just once in the past seven years, in a more notable game where they played the role of the underdog:
A W-B-W combo for the Wildcats this week. One that has only been worn once before in the last seven years, so I included a reminder of what it looks like in person. What you need to know:— Ella Brockway (@ellabrockway) October 31, 2019
Record since '12: 0-1
Last worn: 2016 loss at Ohio State https://t.co/hDptxc6Cd7 pic.twitter.com/62bbfrIpku
The Wildcats gave the sixth-ranked Buckeyes a run for their money in that matchup three years ago, but ultimately fell short 24-20. This week, 1-6 Northwestern will be hoping desperately for a different outcome against the surging Hoosiers.
