The No. 23 Navy Midshipmen are looking to reclaim the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy when they play Army on Saturday, and they will turn to some of their greatest teams for inspiration.
Under Armour revealed throwback uniforms for the Midshipmen, which are based on teams from the 1960s teams, an era of Navy football that produced a pair of Heisman Trophy winners and saw the program climb as high as No. 2 in the nation.
The Midshipmen's uniforms are their traditional navy blue with gold accenting and iconic shoulder striping. The helmets feature the team's anchor logo over bronze paint to honor Heisman winners Roger Staubach (1963) and Jim Bellino (1960). The duo's No. 12 and 27 are also displayed at the crown of the helmet.
Army will have specialty uniforms of their own, as this year's edition from Nike honors the soldiers of the 1st Cavalry Division. Past division uniforms have honored the 82nd Airborne Division (2016), 10th Mountain Division (2017), and 1st Infantry Division (2018).
The Black Knights have won each of the last three matchups by one score, which broke a streak of 14 straight wins for Navy. The Midshipmen already have a date set against Kansas State the Liberty Bowl this year — one of the most interesting bowls of the season — but another win would give head coach Ken Niumatalolo his third double-digit win season in Annapolis.
