With the bye week in Northwestern’s rear-view, the ‘Cats will attempt to turn things around against Rutgers this Saturday. On Thursday, NU announced that they’ll be rocking all purple uniforms along with white helmets contrasted by the purple ‘Block N’ logo for its Homecoming game.

The white face masks make their third appearance of the season, and before NU’s loss to Duke, the ‘Cats were undefeated in this helmet combo which consists of a white base, purple N and white face mask.

While the purple jerseys are common, according to former Daily Northwestern sports editor Ella Brockway, this uniform combination has only been worn twice.

The Wildcats will try to stay undefeated in the purple tops, purple pants and white helmets when they take on Rutgers at Ryan Field Saturday at 11 am CT on Big Ten Network.
