This Saturday’s matchup against North Carolina will mark 100 years in the most storied rivalry in all of sports.
To mark that occasion both Duke and North Carolina will wear special jerseys similar to those worn in the first game back on Jan. 24, 1920:
“The body is covered in the programs’ respective tones of heathered blue. The front of the jerseys are characterized by the program logo and are absent of numbers, mirroring the teams’ 1920 look. On the inside bottom hem of the jerseys are the Roman numerals MCMXX-MMXX, which translates to 1920-2020. A gold jock tag and gold ELITE tag on the neck signifies a special distinction: programs that have won at least one national championship as a Nike school.”
Retail versions of the jerseys will be available to purchase on Fri. Feb. 7th.
