Army unveils epic uniforms ahead of game vs. Navy”

The white uniforms will be a stark contrast to Navy's, which revealed its blue and yellow uniforms to honor the Blue Angels.

College football's annual Army vs. Navy game is one of the sport's greatest traditions, conjuring images of cadets in uniform and hard-nosed December football.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Army will be wearing a new uniform honoring one of its famed divisions when it plays Navy this weekend in its big rivalry game.

The white uniforms are made from material that minimizes weight, even when soaked with sweat.

The white jerseys and trousers are a tribute to the soldiers of the 10th Mountain Division, which rose to prominence in 1943 during World War II.

The division's 85th, 86th and 87th Mountain Infantry Regiments and the 126th Mountain Engineer Battalion will be honored with crests worn on the front of the jersey.

In February 1945, the unit had a defining moment in the Apennine Mountains of northern Italy.

These soldiers trained at 9,200 feet to learn to fight, and survive, in the most brutal mountain conditions. The Germans, who had considered the peak impossible to scale, were quickly routed. They fight on the harshest terrain, in any climate, anywhere in the world, to protect and defend the United States of America. We honor the past by re-telling the story of the "Climb to Glory".

The outcome is still a mystery, but what's for certain is that both teams will be looking their best on Saturday.
