Northwestern releases star-spangled (and not bloody!) Wounded Warrior uniforms

Under Armour via ESPN

The uniforms will be worn November 16 on Michigan, the week after Texas Tech's similar tribute to the Lone Survivor Foundation.

Update: Under Armour responds to a question about whether that's supposed to be blood or not.

The Northwestern University football uniforms designed by Under Armour in support of Wounded Warrior Project feature an authentic distressed pattern which depicts a flag that has flown proudly over a long period of time. The game-worn jerseys will be auctioned off on the University's website following Northwestern's Nov 16 game, with 100% of the proceeds supporting Wounded Warrior Project.

As does Northwestern, adding that the uniforms won't be changing, other than having Big Ten patches added.

The special Northwestern University football uniforms designed by Under Armour in support of the Wounded Warrior Project feature a distressed pattern on both the stars and stripes that was inspired by the appearance of a flag that has flown proudly over a long period of time. We apologize for any misinterpretation.

We're very proud of the partnership we have with the Wounded Warrior Project and look forward to auctioning off each of the jerseys after they're worn on the field November 16, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to support the Project.

Under Armour's latest Northwestern uniforms feature stars and stripes (and maybe blood?) all over, in partnership with the Wounded Warrior Project, including these eye-catching cleats:

After a bye week, the Wildcats face Michigan and are hoping to break a five-game losing streak. It's a must-win game for Northwestern, who started out 4-0 and need to win two out of their last three to make a bowl game.

Edit: Here, it's apparent the same streak effect is used on the blue side as well:

But just looking at this side, it's easy to see this as blood:

Previously in the year, the Red Raiders unveiled some sweet new uniforms provided by the Lone Survivor Foundation, which will be worn in Texas Tech's next game, against Kansas State.

The Red Raiders will face national title contender Baylor in a game Texas Tech has to win if they have any hope of staying in the Big 12 race. Texas Tech has been one of the surprise teams this season, starting the year a perfect 7-0 before back-to-back losses to Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.

The Wounded Warrior project serves to help veterans acquire services they need through awareness campaigns and fundraising efforts. Their mission statement is "to honor and empower Wounded Warriors." Formed in 2003, they've spent over $100 million on the cause.
