Boston College and Under Armour unveiled a new uniform for the upcoming matchup against Notre Dame at Fenway Park. BC sent out a press release today to talk about the inspirations for the uniform:
The specially-designed Under Armour uniforms were inspired by the "Miracle in Miami," Doug Flutie's last-second touchdown pass to Gerald Phelan on Nov. 23, 1984 in the Orange Bowl to give the No. 10 Eagles a 47-45 win over 12th-ranked Miami. BC finished the season with a 10-2 record and defeated Houston, 45-28, in the Cotton Bowl on Jan. 1, 1985.
In a game against a historic rival, at a historic venue these uniforms work well. I dig the throw back mustard yellow and white, and Under Armour did a nice job of updating it just enough to make it modern. It's hard to remember the last time BC brought these special uniforms back, but a game against Notre Dame is the perfect opportunity. If I remember correctly the last time BC altered their uniforms, they beat the #9 team in the country.
Notre Dame will be unveiling their special uniforms later today. I'm sure it will be something shiny.
