Northwestern Football to go Gothic Again Saturday

The Northwestern Wildcats football team will wear their ‘Northwestern Gothic’ uniforms Saturday as they take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers at Ryan Field.

The uniform set was debuted during last season’s Homecoming game against Nebraska, but design elements could be found as early as this video from 2012 in the early days of Under Armour’s partnership with Northwestern.

The uniform draws inspiration from the Gothic architecture and typeface found around Northwestern’s Evanston and Chicago campuses. After the football team debuted the look last fall, it has been adapted to Northwestern’s women’s lacrosse and men’s golf programs.
