Northwestern is one of those schools that has many different uniform combinations. The Under Armor outfitted program not only has its different combos of purple and white, but also has a black variation that it tends to wear around the house.
The last two games, both at home, Northwestern showed different looks. He wore all purple against Rutgers but with a white helmet, and the week before he wore the purple top with black helmets and pants. At Duke, it went with a white jersey and a helmet with purple socks.
According to the official Wildcats Twitter account, Northwestern will sport a more traditional look, wearing a purple helmet and pants with a white jersey.

Although this is the traditional look, this is the first time this year that Northwestern will be equipped as such. The second road game of the season for the Wildcats, so there weren’t many opportunities for them to dress like one, but even then NU tends to have a lot of variation, between jerseys, pants and even different helmets – maybe more than you think.
However, he donned this look in the Big Ten Championship game last December, in the loss to Ohio State, and he wore this suit on his last visit to Ann Arbor in 2015.
