Simply put, Northwestern needs a win against an 0-3 Ohio on Saturday to prevent its season from entering a doomsday scenario. Luckily for ‘Cats fans, it appears the program is aware of that, as it announced via tweet that NU would wear a lucky uniform combination against the Bobcats:

The uniform features the Wildcats’ flagship purple jersey and black pants and helmets with matching purple “Block N” logos outlined in white. According to former Daily Northwestern staffer (and newly-announced Washington Post editor) Ella Brockway, NU is undefeated in this uniform, winning all six of the contests it has played in these particular threads. The ‘Cats’ most recent win in the combo came in their 30-14 victory over UNLV in 2019.

Northwestern will take on Ohio at 11 a.m. CT on Saturday, and the matchup will be televised on Big Ten Network. Here’s hoping the purple-black-black combo keeps up its winning ways.
