Uniform changes at Notre Dame have been pretty rare. However, under Brian Kelly, the Irish tweaked the color of their helmet and wore alternate uniforms last season in the Saturday night game against Michigan.
While neither of those changes were a particularly a drastic switch, Notre Dame has shown some willingness to tweak its uniform, especially as alternate jerseys have become a new craze in college football.
However, any traditionalists will want to cover their eyes after looking at the new Notre Dame jerseys. Luckily for Fighting Irish fans, these will be worn in the Oct. 6 matchup in Chicago against Miami.
Needless to say, these are quite different and aren't popular with the Notre Dame fanbase. Although the uniform colors aren't bad, the helmet is a disaster. The Irish's shining gold helmet is one of the best in college football and the new split look is a bad look for Notre Dame.
