Week 3 uniform combination announced

Purple for the home opener.

NCAA Football: Nebraska at Northwestern Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports

The ‘Cats glamour for their 2019 home opener has been revealed.

Northwestern will wear a purple jersey-black pants-black helmet uniform combo on Saturday as they take on UNLV in the team’s second game of the season.

No Northwestern uniform announcement is complete without analysis from Ella Brockway of The Daily Northwestern, who gave us her assessment of this particular Wildcat outfit and its history. According to Brockway, Northwestern is 5-0 with this combo since 2012 and last wore these particular colors against last season’s thrilling home comeback victory against Nebraska.

The ‘Cats will look to go 6-0 in this combo since 2012 as they search for their first win of the season against UNLV on Saturday.
