Army football to honor 82nd Airborne Division with amazing uniforms vs. Navy

The Army football team will be wearing some incredible uniforms for its matchup with Navy on Saturday.

Army launched a website to detail the inspiration behind the uniforms which will honor the World War II paratroopers of the 82nd Airborne Division. Army also released a highlight video to detail the inspiration behind the new look.

More from the press release:

Army West Point Football and official apparel sponsor Nike unveil the 2016 Army-Navy Game uniform. This uniform was inspired by the World War II paratroopers of the 82nd Airborne Division. We honor the past by re-telling stories of valor, courage, and sacrifice. Inspired, humbled, and motivated by the soldiers that came before us, we don their patches, adopt their mottos, and hold their deeds close to our hearts.

Highly trained and highly disciplined, the soldiers of the 82nd Airborne 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. Their unwavering brotherhood and intense dedication to success, ultimately led to mission accomplishment.

Kickoff between Army and Navy is set for 3 p.m. ET at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. Live coverage will be available on CBS.
