Unveiled in December 2012, Army wore specially designed uniforms by Nike Football when it took the field against arch-rival Navy in December. The unique uniform design paid tribute to the year 1944, which included the first of the Black Knights' three straight national championships and the United States' World War II victory at the Battle of the Bulge.
The Black Knights sported black jerseys with black pants, gold shoes and gold helmets. A historical, re-interpreted West Point map of the battle is incorporated into several elements of the uniform, including the jersey numbers, gloves, helmet stripe and inside of the cleats. In addition, the helmet featured a small black spade on the side in honor of the 101st Airborne Division, which fought in the Battle of the Bulge. All items with the exception of the pants and gloves are now available for auction.
