Earlier this offseason, we noted the last time Notre Dame won a national championship as part of a summer-long series. This season, the Fighting Irish will sartorially note it as well.
To help commemorate the 150th anniversary of the first-ever college football game, “Under Armour has designed a unique throwback uniform for each of its partner programs that references a key moment in team history.” Tuesday, Notre Dame, one of those partners, unveiled a uniform that will honor its 1988 title squad.
The commemorative unis will be worn by the Fighting Irish when they play host to Boston College Nov. 23 at Notre Dame Stadium.
“To celebrate college football’s 150th anniversary and to give nod to one of the greatest teams ever to take the field, this year’s heritage uniform honors Notre Dame’s undefeated 1988 season,” Nick Billiris, senior design director of team sports at Under Armor, said in a statement. “With a perfect 12-0 mark and a National Championship, the 1988 Fighting Irish team epitomizes what every team strives for each season – perfection.”
