Army breaking out special uniforms for Navy

For the second year in a row, Army will wear special uniforms for its rivalry game with Navy on Saturday (3 p.m. ET, CBS). 

This year's look sticks with Army's traditional black and gold - gold helmets, black jerseys, black pants and gold shoes. The "theme" pays tribute to 1944 - the first of the Black Knights' three consecutive national championships and the U.S. Army's victory at the Battle of the Bulge. The helmet will feature a small, black spade on the side to honor the 101st Airborne Division, which was instrumental in winning the Battle of the Bulge. 

Additionally, the uniforms will feature a historical, re-interpreted West Point map of the battle designed into the jersey numbers, helmet stripes, gloves and inside the cleats.

We've posted a few photos below but you can see the whole set at the Army - Navy Game Facebook page
