University of Maryland Unveils New Uniforms, Complete With Star-Spangled Helmet

The University of Maryland and partner Under Armor unveiled some new football uniforms for a game against West Virginia on Saturday, and they've gone heavy on the patriotism. The new uniform features a War of 1812 theme, complete with an image of Fort McHenry and lyrics to "The Star-Spangled Banner" emblazoned on the helmets.

The new threads are timely as well as eye-catching: Saturday's game coincides with the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Baltimore, which served as inspiration for Francis Scott Key, author of the lyrics to the United States' national anthem.
