How could an event already referred to as "America's Game" get even more patriotic?

Just ask Navy Football.

The Midshipmen broke out some incredible new uniforms for the 115th edition of the Army-Navy game played Saturday at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.

According NavySports.com, the red-white-and-blue Under Armour gear that included the "Don't Tread On Me" motto was inspired by the First Navy Jack:

In 2002 Secretary of the Navy Gordon R. England ordered all United States Navy ships to fly the First Navy Jack with the "Don't Tread On Me" motto and moving rattlesnake in place of the regular Navy Jack for the duration of the global war on terror. The First Navy Jack, with its red and white stripes, was first used by the Continental Navy during the American Revolution.
