One of the most celebrated rivalries in college football will be front and center when Army and Navy clash for the 114th time on Dec. 14 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

To honor the longstanding tradition, Nike has designed custom uniforms for both Army and Navy that highlight the legacy and culture of the two service academies.

The design for the Naval Academy features the famous last words of Captain James Lawrence, “Don’t give up the ship,” as inspiration for the uniform:

As for the cadets at West Point, their uniforms highlight the legacy of General Winfield Scott, nicknamed “Old Fuss and Feathers.”
