Navy football's new uniforms remind you which team the Mids want to beat

The Navy football team will play Saturday at M&T Bank Stadium in uniforms inspired by those the Midshipmen wore in 1963, when, led by quarterback Roger Staubach, they went 9-2 and appeared in the Cotton Bowl.

The 1963 Navy team donned a yellow uniform with a gold helmet, along with a block N with four stars on each shoulder and blue numerals, all of which will be mimicked Saturday. (The Mids will wear white tops this time, however.)

Navy's uniforms also will remind the likely capacity crowd of the Mids' opponents and what the Mids want to do with them.

"Go, Navy! ..."

Looks like the helmet guy missed the meeting about exclamation points.

Army, meanwhile, will wear black and muted gray uniforms honoring the World War II paratroopers of the 82nd Airborne Division, who were "asked to spearhead the invasions of Italy, Normandy and Holland. With little to no reinforcements or relief in the most adverse conditions, their physical and mental toughness was pushed to the limits."

OK, yeah, cool, but who do the Black Knights intend to beat? It's still unclear.
