Notre Dame unveils new uniforms for game at Soldier Field


Notre Dame fans going to see the football team at Soldier Field in Chicago when the Fighting Irish play Miami in October may not recognize the home team. The Irish will wear a special uniform for the neutral-site home game. The jerseys have metallic numbers and letters that say IRISH on the front. The gold pants have a blue stripe on the left side with a leprechaun on it. The helmet is gold on the top and the right side and blue on the left with a leprechaun. The South Bend Tribune reported the unveiling of the uniforms Thursday led to extreme reactions: One person posted on Twitter: “WE ARE! MD!” referring to unpopular uniforms the Terrapins wore last year. – AP
