Navy went 9-2 in 1963, defeated Army in the Army-Navy game, and faced Texas in the Cotton Bowl on New Year’s Day.

The 1963 team wore a yellow uniform with a gold helmet and the 2016 version pays homage to the color of the uniform, but also adds a futuristic twist to match the helmet with a high gloss yellow finish. The 2016 pant color is “Academy Gold.” It has a block N with four stars on each shoulder, just as Navy wore in the 1963 Army-Navy Game.

Navy’s “Beat Army” motto will appear on the jersey hem and on the palms of the gloves. The helmet will have a blue stripe and anchor decals.
