This combo was first worn in 1963 against Illinois, where the Illini beat NU 10-9. Since then, the ‘Cats have a 3-19-1 record. All the wins were on the road, two of which were with the Under Armour uniforms.
Last year, the Wildcats wore this combination in a 30-23 loss to Duke. Prior to that, NU lost 22-10 versus Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship game in 2020.
The most recent win in W-W-P was at Rutgers in 2018, where they won 18-15.
Northwestern plays at Maryland at 2:30 P.M. CST on BTN.
