Notre Dame and Navy will wear matching matching baselayers to honor the history of their rivalry when they play on Oct. 10.
Each team will sport Under Armour shirts the words respect, honor and tradition emblazoned on the front. The players will also be wearing the same gloves, socks and cleats.
According to the schools, this is the first time that opposing teams have worn matching baselayers in the history of college football.
Notre Dame and Navy have met 88 times since their inaugural matchup on Oct. 15, 1927. Notre Dame leads the series 75–12–1, including an NCAA-record 43-game win streak from 1964 to 2006. Navy broke that streak with a 46–44 win in 2007.
Notre Dame has won the last four matchups against Navy. However, the traditionally one-sided series has been closer in recent years, with Navy winning three of the last eight.
Navy will enter the game undefeated (4–0). Notre Dame is hoping to rebound from a 24–22 loss to Clemson that dropped it nine spots in the AP poll to No. 15.
