Custom Uniforms Unveiled For Saturday's Army-Navy Game


M&T Bank Stadium will pull double duty this week.

In addition to Sunday's Ravens-Jaguars game, the stadium will also play home to the classic Army-Navy matchup Saturday at 3 p.m.

Navy is also bringing a new flare to the 115th rivalry game between the United States military academies. Navy has unveiled new "Don't Tread On Me" uniforms custom-made by Under Armour that it will wear for the contest. All of the uniforms have the "Don't Tread On Me" motto embroidered on the hem of the jersey and side of the pants.

"The Under Armour uniforms are inspired by the First Navy Jack," read a press release from the school. "In 2002 Secretary of the Navy Gordon R. England ordered all United States Navy ships to fly the First Navy Jack with the 'Don't Tread On Me' motto and moving rattlesnake in place of the regular Navy Jack for the duration of the global war on terror. The First Navy Jack, with its red and white stripes, was first used by the Continental Navy during the American Revolution."

Navy is the first U.S. military academy to be outfitted by the Baltimore-based Under Armour.

A limited number of tickets are still available for Saturday's matchup, which can be purchased online or by contacting the ticket office at 410-2261-7283.
