Shamrock Series jersey reveal coming

On Thursday evening Notre Dame will unveil its latest Shamrock Series uniform. After going green for Fenway Park, will the Irish apply a military theme to this year’s jersey?

Notre Dame has gone green, white and blue with its Shamrock Series garb.

It’s stuck a shamrock, a leprechaun and the interlocking ND on the helmet.

Now Notre Dame is ready to reveal another iteration of the Shamrock Series uniforms, which have debuted in the past with future Pro Bowlers and former walk-ons.

Last year walk-on running back Josh Anderson modeled the gear for the team as Brian Kelly put him on full ride. A few years earlier, Tyler Eifert and Manti Te’o showed up to Media Day in the old press box in Shamrock Series uniform.

Point being, Notre Dame is running out of color schemes, logos and curtain raisings on its annual alternate uniform that seems to play better with recruits than fans, a fine tradeoff for the football program.

Yet based on the 22-second video Notre Dame produced to tease the reveal, it’s a good bet the military will be represented in this year’s outfit. With Army set as the opponent – the Irish beat the Black Knights at Yankee Stadium in Kelly’s debut Shamrock Series – it makes sense for Notre Dame to incorporate a military aesthetic.

The video concludes with “God, Country, Notre Dame” with military audio in the background.

Will Notre Dame go camouflage or work another military element into this year’s jersey? Find out Thursday at 6:30 p.m. eastern.
