When Navy takes on Ohio State at MT&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore on Saturday, it's going to have a sharp, new look.
The Naval Academy reached an agreement with Under Armour earlier this year, so the company will outfit all 33 of Navy's varsity teams. Ahead of Navy's big game against the Buckeyes this weekend, Under Armour came up with a new "Summer Whites" uniform for the Midshipmen.
The helmets will definitely grab your attention.
Navy's new uniforms will have a unique feature. Each player's rank will be displayed on both the shoulder boards and the pants.
Here's how you will be able to identify a player's rank:
- Freshman: anchor but no stripes
- Sophomore: anchor with one diagonal stripe
- Junior: anchor with two diagonal stripes
- Senior: anchor with one parallel stripe
- Captain: star and three parallel stripes
This football uniform may look somewhat familiar to you, and that's because it was inspired by the Naval Academy's Summer Whites military uniforms.
Like the military uniforms, the football team will wear all-white gloves and cleats.
