Navy football is honoring its two Heisman Trophy winners with throwback uniforms from the 1960s for this year’s installment of the Army-Navy rivalry game.

The navy blue jerseys feature gold numbers and stripes on the shoulders, gold pants and a bronze helmet with an anchor logo.

Halfback Joe Bellino and quarterback Roger Staubach won the Heisman while at Navy in 1960 and 1963, respectively.

Army and Navy meet for the 120th time on Dec. 14 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. A win for the Midshipmen would give them outright ownership of the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy this year for beating both Air Force and Army.

Army countered with uniforms that are camouflage green-and-white with yellow accents to honor the 1st Cavalry Division.

Army has won the rivalry game three straight years, but Navy sports the better record this season. The Midshipmen are 9-2 and 24th in the College Football Playoff rankings, while Army is 5-7.
