Purdue introduced alternate "anthracite" gray uniforms on Saturday, showing a color scheme from Nike that is a departure from the Boilermakers' traditional black and gold.

Purdue typically wears black uniforms for home games and white on the road. These alternates are heavy on the gray and white, but limit the black and gold mainly to the school's logo and lettering on the helmet.
