Navy to Wear Custom 'Don't Tread on Me' Uniforms for Army-Navy Game

Dan Carson@@DrCarson73Trending Lead WriterDecember 9, 2014


Under Armour is rolling out custom uniforms for the Navy Midshipmen in time for Saturday’s Army-Navy game, and, as you might expect, the gear is as American as Duke Nukem fist-fighting a crepe iron.

Tagged with the words "Don't Tread On Me," the gear features red stripes over navy and white. Under Armour also made significant use of the First Navy Jack rattlesnake, which will be featured in a non-coiled, flying-out-of-the-fake-peanut-jar form. 

In short, these uniforms are quite to very fresh, depending on your taste for hammer-down patriotism.

The main logo will feature a redesigned Navy "N-star" with an intertwining rattlesnake, because the snake is terrifying and cannot be featured enough.

Army and Navy will kick off at 3 p.m. ET on Saturday at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland. The game will mark the 115th meeting between the two programs. Navy leads the series 58-49 (with seven ties).
