Army, Navy drop uniform combinations before their 2016 game

Dec 6, 2016, 4:27 PM

Army vs. Navy. Also known as Nike vs. Under Armour.

Navy (9-3) comes off a disappointing loss to Temple that cost them a trip to the Cotton Bowl, but Army has the momentum when it comes to the fashion game. The Black Knights on Monday revealed their uniforms that honor the 82nd Airborne division paratroopers.

Nike even launched a website complete with photos, history and uniform specifics to promote the jerseys.

The uniform design pays homage to authentic WWII era paratrooper jump suits with division patch, oversized 48-star American flag patch, player name tapes, full-color historical unit patches and an improvised camo base layer. Additionally, initial members of the 82nd Airborne Division came from all 48 states which informed their “All American” nickname and iconic “AA” shoulder patch.

The Midshipmen dropped their special uniforms on Tuesday. The Under Armour outfits pay homage to the 1963 jerseys worn by Navy.

It’s hard to beat last year’s uniforms, however. Each position unit for Navy wore hand-painted helmets of different types of ship.
