Northwestern announced on Friday morning that the ‘Cats will be wearing a matte black helmet, white jerseys and black pants as they look to remain unbeaten against Purdue Saturday evening.

The UA cleats also feature a unique design reminiscent of the scratch marks of a ferocious feline, as the ‘Cats will certainly need to sharpen their claws for Saturday’s battle.

According to Ella Brockway of The Daily Northwestern, the ‘Cats are 2-1 when wearing the combo, which last appearing in the narrow loss to Nebraska in 2019.

With anticipation building for next week’s matchup against COVID-struck Wisconsin, the ‘Cats will look to advance to 4-0 to solidify their spot atop the Big Ten West and earn their third win in these threads.
